How to preserve the Fresh White Truffle
The preservation can take place in the refrigerator:
- In the refrigerator (between 2 ° and 6 °)- It can be wrapped individually in an absorbent paper or enclosed in an airtight food container. The container must be replaced, if necessary, every day. Small white molds may form around the truffle, resulting from normal perspiration and water loss; in this case, the truffle is not yet ruined. It can be defined as ruined when it begins to lose its consistency, to become soft and consequently to emit a bad smell. Storage Period : approx 5 days.
