Please Note: Sea Salt is a very fine grain salt and cannot be used in cooking without the advice or consent of a food expert. There are several varieties of this all-natural sea salt including the light seasonings and the dark, more intense "real" tasting Italian truffle salt blended with water. Both the sea and black truffle blends have been named "Truffles" which is also the name of one of the most famous and highly sought after designer candy with an extensive history dating back to 1700. These delicious confections were created primarily in Italy by necessity instead of by design.
Black Truffle Sea Salt comes from a combination of several ancient Italian herbs and sea salts. The black truffle salt is blended with olive oil to create a pasteurized paste which can then be added to other ingredients and cooked on top of the other ingredients. This ancient multi-purpose mixture of various herbs, sea salts, and chemicals has become a favorite cooking ingredient for generations.
Most sea salts and black truffle sea salt are mined in different countries including Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, and Greece. Most salts are naturally mined, while others are artificially produced. The artificial ones, such as the "dave" variety are basically color-treated table salt with various color additives to make it more pleasing to the eye. Natural sea salts are very fine-grained and contain no additives that make them go bad.
There are many types of black truffle sea salt on the market today. One of the most common types of black truffle is the organic variety, which is harvested without the use of chemicals. Organic black truffle salt contains trace minerals and essential fatty acids that are important for the body. The natural organic variety of black truffle is extremely rich and goes through a long curing process which seals its flavor and provides for long shelf life. Unlike commercially produced black truffles, organic blends have not been treated with preservatives or additives.
You may also find Italian black truffle sea salt that is harvested in a different way. During harvesting, the seeds are removed with a piece of metal wire attached. This wire is then used to separate the salt from the seed until the salt crystals reach the desired crystal form. This salt is then packaged in heavy glass jars. Although the method of harvesting Italian black truffle is different than harvesting black truffle from sea salt, the result is the same. The crystal-clear crystals provide an amazing taste that cannot be found in other types of salt.
Many Italian black truffle cookies have a combination of flavors. These are cookies with a hint of raspberry essence along with nutmeg and cinnamon. In addition, the combination of these two ingredients allows for a beautiful color and an incredible aroma. The combination of these two ingredients creates a unique and tasty cookie. Not only does this delicious mixture of ingredients create an amazing flavor, but it also provides a wonderful texture as well.
When you combine salt, sugar, and cream of tartar, this creates a wonderful mixture. In order to get the signature rich, earthy flavor that all Italian black truffle cookies have, it is imperative that the correct combination of ingredients is used. These ingredients can be purchased in bulk at many grocery stores and they are also available online. If purchasing them in bulk, always make sure you have used a quality sea salt that contains trace minerals like calcium and magnesium.
