The classic chocolate truffle is a food just loved by everyone. While still tightly sealed in a hard container, the classic scent envelopes the salt, providing true earthy truffle essence that everyone know and love. Unlike truffle spices, truffle salt tends to be less spicy in taste and scent, however that is not necessarily a good thing. While it is true that the classic chocolate truffle is more rich and creamy than its savory counterpart, it can be just as yummy and decadent with a salty twist.
Traditionally, truffles are made with French vanilla, or Champagne, flavor. However, some have decided to stray from the traditional flavor, and have created a salt alternative that is both delicious and salty. With the popularity of truffles soaring, more people are looking for a way to create their own home-made versions at home. In this article, I will introduce you to three different options when it comes to creating your own salt truffles.
Most commonly, when you buy truffles at the store, they are usually pretty much bland. While this may be fine for those who are not particularly interested in experimenting, if you are looking for an authentic truffle salt experience, then you should be able to come up with your own unique flavor combinations. The first option is to make your own using rock salt. While it may take some time to melt the rock salt and stir it with water, once it has cooled enough, it should provide you with a salty and sweet truffle salt flavor that cannot be found in the store-bought variety.
The next option that you have is black truffle salt. It may sound a little bit strange, but it actually comes in very handy. Unlike regular salt, black truffle salt actually has a high amount of magnesium. This contributes to the fact that black truffle salt has a very salty taste. This option is great if you want to add a little bit of flavor to your summertime snacks or desserts.
The third option is to use truffle salt. This can be done quite easily if you are taking a trip somewhere where you know they have dried ore. Just take a couple of tablespoons of the dried ore and sprinkle them on top of a nice piece of Graham cracker. Leave the mixture on the cracker for about ten minutes, which will allow the flavors to meld together.
Once you have finished your black summer truffles, you can take a fresh piece of sea salt and mix it with about two tablespoons of olive oil. You can then sprinkle the mixture on top of your baked potatoes. Leave the mixture on the potato until it becomes dark and golden brown. When it has completely dried, you can sprinkle the top with some sea salt. You will notice a big difference in the flavor of your baked potato.
For something a little less expensive, you can also make some homemade chocolate truffle salt. You will need to melt some milk, a small handful of white chocolate chips, and a little bit of sea salt. Once you have combined all of these ingredients, just pour them into a microwave-safe container and set them to heat up for about thirty seconds.
You will then want to sprinkle your mixture onto your popcorn. This will create a nice dark color, as well as allow you to evenly sprinkle the chips onto your popcorn. If you would like to see a lighter version of truffle salt on your popcorn, you can sprinkle a few white chocolate chips on top of your mixture. This will allow you to see a little bit of smoke in your mixture, which is what we love to taste when enjoying our delicious black truffle salt.
