Black Truffle Sea Salt Baking Cookies
The incredible richness, delectable flavor, and appearance of black truffle salt make it one of the most popular ingredients in gourmet cooking. Made from Pacific Ocean Sea Salt harvested from the Montalcino sheep of Italy, this salty salt has a generous heaving of Italian black truffle salt. Add rich, deeply flavored taste to favorite foods ranging from roast potatoes, roasted chicken, eggs, popcorn, and cheese. For an extra kick, sprinkle it on top of baked sweet potatoes, carrot cakes, yogurt-covered strawberries, or ice cream.
To enjoy the aroma, sprinkle black truffle sea salt on top of fresh mushrooms. If you like, you can also add it to the top of sauteed mushrooms as it provides a delightful aroma. For maximum flavor, however, use it on top of roasted vegetables. Roasted potatoes are perfect for this method since the salt provides a warm, soft, and almost melt-in-your-mouth feel to them. You can also sprinkle it over freshly cut green or red veggies such as spinach or kale.
Another way to enjoy the rich aroma is to make a delicious sauce with it. Any type of vegetable or cooked meat can be used. A popular recipe is to coat meat with black truffle salt and olive oil and then cook it in a pan over medium heat. Remove it when it is done. It will make a delicious and very healthy pasta sauce.
To make the pasta sauce, combine olive oil and black truffle sea salt and let it coat the pasta until it coats them evenly. Add any cooked meat or vegetables and any seasonings that you wish to add and let them coat thoroughly. Drain the pasta and serve it hot. You may want to add a little bit of water or stock to make the sauce better.
Popcorn is another food that can be added to your menu at holiday time. There is a reason why popcorn has been around for such a long time. Not only is it easy to prepare, but it provides an excellent source of crunchy goodness. One very simple recipe for this is to heat some water in a sauce pan and then add in your dry popcorn. Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat as you watch the popcorn turn from golden brown to black in color.
Another ingredient that you may not be aware of but adds a wonderful flavor to any dish is a dash of black summer truffle salt. These salty cookies are very popular and have been in style for many years. A standard recipe calls for equal parts of white and dark chocolate chips, brown sugar and butter. You can also add in additional ingredients like lemon juice and vanilla extract for an even deeper flavor. Be careful when using this salt though. As with any other seasoning, too much can be overwhelming and it will need to be balanced out with lighter colored ingredients.
You may not think it but sea salt is also very good on your pasta. In fact, sea salt mixed with olive oil and garlic is a delicious and very healthy meal. All you need do is combine the pasta with the flavored oil and then sprinkle over the top with the flat side of the salt. Bake it in the oven until the pasta and topping are bubbly.
In addition to the flavors that you find in these cookies, there are also many different brands of cookie dough which uses truffles as their base. You can purchase these brands at health food stores or online. If you have a pasta-eating family, you could make a batch of homemade pizza dough using olive oil, garlic, salt, and your favorite flavors of cookies and place the dough in a zip lock bag and freeze until ready to bake.
