Fresh black truffle mushrooms from Perigord, France are the best truffles, black inside indicates maturity and peak truffle flavor and aroma.
Perigord black truffles from France are in season late November through mid March, and usually reach their peak of maturity in January and February. Look for black truffle mushrooms that are black inside, with white veins, firm to touch; never spongy.
Black winter truffles are the only truffles that are best enjoyed heated or cooked. The heating process intensifies the wonderful truffle flavor and aroma that is unique to black winter truffles. All other popular truffle varieties such as Alba white truffles, burgundy truffles, and summer truffles are best served raw.
Black truffles last longer than white truffles, stored properly, fresh black truffles will last for a week to ten days. The black truffles should be wrapped in a paper towel and kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The towel should be changed daily or as need to keep the truffles dry.
