Does anyone know where i can get them? I missed the saturday farmers market with the mushroom guy and need to get my hands on some.
"Truffles are a Tuber not a fungus".
Most common Species :
Tuber aestivum ( "summer truffle" )
Tuber magnatum ( "Alba truffle" )
Tuber melanosporum ( "Perigord truffle" )
Tuber oregonense ( "Oregon truffle" )
Tuber sinensis ( "Chinese truffle" )
Tuber uncinatum ( "Burgundy truffle" )
NOTE -to Moderators?- :
For some reason that has to do with the software used by CH the link above, as well as many other links I posted in the past, doesn't work. Go figure! Oh well, just google the words "wikipedia truffle (fungi)" , you'll surely get the correct wikipedia link right on top.
