The tantalizing, mouth-watering flavor of black truffle makes it a food that cannot be explained. Once you've tried a black truffle, you'll never try to avoid them again. The melt-in-your-mouth delight of the smooth vanilla flavor is hard to beat. Made naturally from the finest Pacific Ocean Sea Salt and an equally generous heaving of Italian black truffle salt, this irresistible salt elevates plain dishes to gastronomic stunning masterpieces. From pasta to pizza, from pasta to ice cream, you can make use of this delectable salty treat whenever you like.
For instance, a big pot of low-sodium Italian style popcorn topped with low-fat sour cream and some low-fat, non-fat cheddar cheese would be ideal for a holiday appetizer. If you want a more filling snack, mash some potatoes into a paste and top with the same healthy seasoning mix as for the popcorn. If you have some fresh basil from your garden, crush a handful and sprinkle over the top of your baked potato. You'll have a tasty and healthy addition to any meal!
Of course, there are many ways to enjoy Italian black truffle salt on your favorite dishes. Most people love the salty, earthy flavor. Sea salt has such a flavor because of its minerals, which include magnesium, potassium, sodium, and calcium. By combining this earthy taste with some Italian ingredients (such as Parmesan cheese, tomatoes, garlic, onions, etc), you create an amazing variety of salty dishes that are sure to be a hit at any fancy dinner party or a casual get-together.
Did you know that black truffle sea salt is also used in the creation of candied yams? How cool! The intense flavors of the different herbs and seasonings really bring out the rich, creamy, vanilla flavor of the candied yams. If you're looking for a sweet treat that is rich in flavor and yet has few calories, this would be the perfect option for you.
Another great combination that black truffle sea salt and Italian herbs would be an excellent way to get your kids in the kitchen to help you prepare meals. Have them help you preheat the oven so that you can make lasagna for a family that doesn't cook all that often. Bring out some balsamic vinegar and put the zester blended with the Italian herbs into the bottom of the pan. Turn the oven on to the low setting and allow the mixture to cook for about an hour. When it's done, remove the pan from the heat and use the black truffle sea salt for dipping the vegetables.
One of the things that I love most about food that is made with gluten-free ingredients is that there is always a wide range of options for seasonings. I find that the more versatile the seasoning blend is, the better. There are many great seasonings that I love to add to my cooking that isn't actually flavored salt. Sugar-free is one of those that I particularly like because it helps me reduce the number of carbohydrates and calories that I'm consuming. Sugar-free is also a very convenient way for me to be able to prepare my favorite dishes without having to use a sugar substitute.
Italian black truffle salt is made from an extremely high-grade type of salt. The highest grade of this type of salt is called dioptreek salt. This Italian sea salt comes from India and is harvested only when it's edible. It is then graded and tested for its color, thickness, and clarity. The salt is harvested in the spring when the sap is the freshest and then stored in a warehouse for up to three years.
Dioptreek is used primarily for its flavor and to help regulate blood pressure. That being said, the flavor of Italian black truffle salt is among my favorites. In my opinion, any seasoned salt is good seasoned salt but the flavor possessed by this sea salt makes it a top choice among professional chefs as well as for seasoning many of my favorite dishes.
