TIP OF THE DAY: Truffle Peelings = Truffle Bargains

Truffle season is upon us, and black winter truffles will be coming into the market soon. If you’re jonesing for the heady aroma and taste of black truffles, but going out for a plate of truffled pasta isn’t an affordable fix, look for a jar of truffle peelings and make your own special dinner entrée or first course.

The peelings are the shaved outer layer of the whole truffle. They’re easy to find online; sells them. They may seem costly, but compare $85.00 or so for 8 ounces compared to more than $100 for one ounce of fresh black winter truffles.

1. Toss angel hair pasta with fine unsalted butter or truffle butter and the peelings—and use one of your nicest plates. A hearty red wine is a perfect companion.

2. You also can use the peelings in sauces, scrambled eggs and mashed potatoes or as garnishes.

Be careful—it could become a habit!
