A precious underground fungus
After picking, fresh truffles should first be thoroughly cleaned with a gentle brush (like a soft toothbrush) under running cold water to remove the soil. Truffles are sensitive organisms that dehydrate and lose their scent, so it is best to eat them as soon as possible. Since moisture is the biggest enemy of truffles, it is best to wrap dried truffles in a clean paper towel before and during use, seal them well in a container and store them in the refrigerator door.
By changing the paper towel daily, this method of storage ensures the high quality of the prized white truffle. When the truffle becomes soft, it should be consumed immediately as this is a sign that it has reached its final stage of ripeness.
