Storage: to really get the flavour from the truffles, we recommend consuming it as fresh as possible, but according to some recipes, you will be able to consume the white truffle even after a week and the black truffle up to a fortnight from collection. A simple method is to wrap every single truffle, without removing the earth covering it in cloth or absorbent paper towels to be changed every day, everything should be stored a jar tightly closed and stored in the least cold part of the refrigerator . The retention period depends on the state of truffles at the time of purchase, it is important to avoid truffles which feel mushy and have no resistance when touched. It is essential that the truffles are not deprived of the land that usually covers them if not before being consumed. Fact, the earth forms a protective layer that with its moisture slows down the aging of the truffle itself. When it comes time to use them, you need to wash them well with water, brushing gently.
