A truffle, also known as a sandstone's dry stone, is a hard, dry, multicolored powdery substance found in Switzerland, France, Italy, Spain, Belgium, and the Himalayas. A truffle is actually the fruiting body of an underground ascomycanete fungus, primarily one of the species of the genus Tuber. The fungi that produce truffles are called "truffle dishes". Some of them are known as Geopora and Tuber while others are known as the Black Truffle. In addition to Tuber and other genera of mushrooms, several other genera of fungi have also been named truffle dishes including Geopora, Leucangium, Choiromyces, Leucadia, and more than a hundred others.

Truffles are the edible portions of these mushrooms. Their round shapes are similar to those of cheese. In order to make truffles, the stems of these fungi are threaded and soaked in wine or alcohol for some days until it's time to remove them from the mushrooms. The stems are then ground into powder, mixed with a little water, yeast, butter or oil, powdered dry fruits (currants and blueberries are popular), and other ingredients. The resulting mixture is then left to ferment for at least two weeks. fermenting and aging are how truffles are made.

To use black truffle salt, all you need to do is take a piece of bread, place a few tablespoons of this salty treat on it, and put it in the oven or ovens for about a minute or so. This will cause the bread to become soggy. However, if you want to add a bit of flavor to the bread without it becoming too wet or mushy, then you can use truffle salt sprinkles. Sprinkle some salt over the bread and you're all set. Alternatively, you could use a little bit of vegetable oil and coat the bread with it.

One thing you should know about using this type of salt is that it is a salt derived from sea salt. If you've ever purchased sea salt at a store, then you've probably noticed that the packets indicate the amount of sodium that they contain. As you likely know, sea salt has a very high sodium content. You should therefore be sure to always buy table salt that is labeled as refined sea salt or unrefined sea salt. Refined sea salt contains a lot less sodium than unrefined sea salt, thus using these table salt products will help you lower your sodium intake.

In addition to helping you lower your sodium intake, using truffle salt on a regular basis will also help you get in a better mood. There is an actual chemical in the salt called sulfate that has been shown to help improve mood and improve concentration. In addition, this salt has been found to help with regulating blood pressure. If you think about it, there are probably quite a few reasons to start to sprinkle it on your food right away. It's definitely a long way from the old-fashioned pack of cigarettes and a glass of cola; it's time for you to start enjoying a taste of truffle salt on a regular basis.

In fact, you don't even need a special machine in order to make truffles. A blender or a food processor is just fine for this purpose, especially if you have one lying around the house. Simply combine all of your ingredients, and then blend until you reach the desired consistency. Then all you have to do is sprinkle the mixture onto your dough. Using a cookie cutter will help you get the best look and texture from the blend, which is something you can't get from sea salt or baking powder.

Of course, you don't always have to make use of a food processor or a blender. Truffle salt also works well when used in savory products such as egg whipped, sausage, or omelets. You can also sprinkle this on top of baked potatoes baked with butter. Even fried foods such as corn on the cob or shrimp can benefit from this salty treat. This may be the secret behind the ever so popular Manhattan-style cheesecake.

So if you're looking for a healthier alternative to the traditional salty snacks, give truffle salt a try. You might be surprised by what you find. The flavor combinations are endless, and it's a healthy treat too. The next time you want to eat something other than your steak and eggs, think about trying truffle salt instead. Your body and mouth will love you for it!
