Last Christmas I picked up a bottle of truffle oil for my Mom. Apparently I thought she wanted or desperately needed it like I do. We are now nearing October and I doubt the truffle oil has even been opened (the horror, I know!) and so the question arose – what do I do with truffle oil?
I will start by saying that the tiny, but expensive bottles of truffle oil really do last longer than they look like they might. The flavor is strong, so typically a few drops is enough and chances are you aren’t going to use it everyday, so if you’ve ever been tempted to pick it up, my recommendation is to get it. You can thank me later.
