Winter time folks - let's talk about Truffles. Did a search, not talked about before and had it's own thread so here is one. I would love to grow them. If possiable. I would LOVE to be a little Haute! Let's get started. From Wiki - A truffle (pronounced /ˈtrʌfəl/) is the fruiting body of an underground mushroom; spore dispersal is accomplished through fungivores, animals that eat fungi. Almost all truffles are ectomycorrhizal and are therefore usually found in close association with trees. There are hundreds of species of truffles that are big, but the fruiting body of some (mostly in the genus 'Tuber') are highly prized as a food. The 18th-century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin called these truffles "the diamond of the kitchen". Edible truffles are held in high esteem in French, Spanish, northern Italian and Greek cooking, as well as in international haute cuisine. The genome sequence of the Périgord black truffle was published in March 2010. Other than Wiki - I got nothing except this (above) - but willing to glean!!!
