There are a lot of different salts on the market. Most of them taste fine but not as good as black truffle sea salt. Truffle salt, also known as French truffle salt or even Italian truffle salt, is a very special type of salt with a unique combination of flavors. True truffle salt only has real whole truffles in it. These truffles will literally give your food an earthy, even sweet, earthy flavor that everybody loves.
You may have noticed that popcorn and cooked eggs go together. That is because truffle salt goes well with sea salt. When you make popcorn, use the highest quality unsalted popcorn kernels you can find and put them on a sheet of wax paper to pop into the microwave for maximum flavor. When you eat your popcorn you will notice a tremendous difference in the flavor and your body will notice a difference in the way your stomach responds to the flavor in the afternoons.
You can take this idea of eating popcorn with a similar flavor to popcorn and make a breakfast casserole that includes black truffle sea salt on the bottom, a couple of sliced black truffle mushrooms atop a tossed salad with a mix of greens and tomatoes. This breakfast casserole can be used for any time of day as long as it has been prepared well and is chilled until Ready To Eat. If you make this with regular commercial popcorn, you'll need to reheat it after preparing. For maximum flavor, it's best to serve it right out of the refrigerator.
Sprinkle black truffle salt on baked potatoes and white potatoes. You can make potato salads by grating cooked potatoes, adding some coarsely chopped carrots, and a little garlic. The potato salad will be so delicious and easy to prepare that your kids will be asking you how to make it for dinner. For a really nice presentation use a shredded paper shredder and grate in some slivered almonds. Almonds add a nice bit of crunch.
Another way to use truffle salt on a variety of foods is to sprinkle it over pasta sauces. You can also top hot dogs with it and turn pasta salads into something appetizing and unique. You can also use sea salt on seafood. Many recipes call for sea salt, which is fine, however, you can always just buy some and add it to any seafood dish you like.
Sprinkle a little bit of truffle salt over leftover bread. This makes bread taste a little bit more fresh, but it doesn't have to go on the bread itself. You could make a delicious crust sandwich with popcorn, cheese, tomato sauce, and some lettuce leaves. A few drops of this mixture on applesauce will help to reduce the acidity of apple sauce, which helps to preserve the crispness of apples.
There are a number of other uses for black truffle salt, including in pickling recipes, as well as in stirred fried dishes. You can sprinkle it over vegetables or mix it in with mustard and horseradish sauce to make a mild spicy version. A little bit goes a long way, so don't be afraid to sprinkle it on just about anything.
It's all very easy to make use of truffle salt to bring out the flavor in even the blandest dishes. The trick is to be aware of which seasonings you're using so that you can make sure they don't overpower the flavors of the foods you're trying to create. Seasoning the foods at the right time will ensure that you don't end up with something that's a little bit too saucy. If you're at all unsure about what elements to use, you might want to experiment with different combinations until you find one that works.
