One of our favorite tricks to adding some flavor to an everyday dish includes adding a bit of black truffle salt. Black, or Périgord, truffles are an extremely expensive ingredient typically used in very small amounts.
Lucky for us, black truffle salt is available for much less money – and a small amount of good quality truffle salt goes a long way.
When choosing your truffle salt, make sure there is a significant enough percentage of truffle included. Not all truffle salts are equal; they typically range from 1-5% black truffle. In our opinion, if you’re going to use truffle salt get a quality product like the one listed above.
