Truffle Oil Question

Recommended Posts

I got a nice bottle of White Truffle Oil for xmas and I was just wondering what recipes is this product best for.

Also, it says on the bottle to refrigerate after opening so I did. Now its all coagulated. Should I not have refrigerated it? How do I uncoaguate prior to use?

Hi

I have a bottle of truffle oil that I've had for at least a year and never refrigerated. It's as good now as it was last month. The manufacturer might have just been trying to cover there asses with the refrigeration rule on the label.

I like to broil/grill a well salted/peppered steak and drizzle the oil over it. Amazing!!!

I'll echo what chrisamirault said -- great on mashed taters and risotto (a classic). I've also found it's great drizzled over grilled beef, lamb or game right before serving. Not bad drizzled over poached eggs either (eggs have a affinity for truffles).

Lastly, it's a winner drizzled into most mushroom-based dishes as the earthiness of both ingredients play off one another beautifully: For a nice and easy appetizer, try a crostini made with sauteed wild mushrooms, fontina and a drizzle of the truffle oil. Mmm Mmm Mmm Toasty!

I do find that truffle oil lose it's flavour/aroma after after a while once it is opened. It will probably keep better in the fridge. But on the other hand it is a bother to warm the whole bottle to room temp if you want to use it....

I keep mine in the fridge because fats in the oil will go rancid much faster than at room temp. If you need to use right away just take the truffle oil and run under hot water under enough oil liqifies.
