While molecularly the same as the burgundy truffle, the summer truffle has a less poignant aroma and a paler hazel hue inside. These slight differences likely come from the different environments. The truffles grow in as well as the time of the year they’re picked. That isn’t to say the black summer truffle is inferior to the burgundy- on the contrary. Their sizes, looks, and flavors are nearly identical. This makes it easy to substitute one for the other in any recipe.
Other Name: Tuber Aestivum Vitt (Scientific name), Truffe de la St. Jean
Shelf Life: Store truffles in a paper bag inside of your refrigerator to give them a shelf life of 10 days.
Nutritional Facts: As truffles are generally used as seasoning or garnish to a meal, their nutritional value is rather low. A typical serving of 5 grams contains trace amounts of minerals and nurtients that are too small to even bother mentioning. On the plus side, they have even smaller amounts of fat, carbohydrates, and calories.
Tips: The black summer truffle will pair well with dishes featuring potatoes, pasta, cheese, and eggs. They’re particularly good on risotto and pizza. Unlike winter truffles, which many modern chefs feel should not be cooked, black summer truffles have a stronger flavor and aroma if they’re very lightly cooked (sautéed or warmed in oil) just prior to use. We recommend using a truffle slicer when cooking with fresh truffles, as the thin shavings it produces will maximize the amount of flavor you get from each truffle. We usually recommend a serving size of 5-7 grams of fresh truffle per dish per person.
