Black Truffle Oil is considered to be the most earthy, intense and pungent Truffle Oil. It is made into a condiment by infusing essence of truffle into olive oil. A few drops is all that is needed to capture the distinct rich, earthy and sumptuous flavors that Truffle Oil imparts. Truffle Oil is best used as a finishing oil, as opposed to a cooking oil, as heat will taint its flavor. Truffle Oil is best when used sparingly as a drizzle over foods, as its flavor is deep and pungent. As an alternative to Truffle Butter, Truffle Oil may be applied over scrambled eggs or may be added to mashed potatoes to add a unique earthy flavor.
