Recently, on Bones, there was an episode where the lifecycle of truffles was an important clue. Not the lifecycle of those delicious chocolate truffles, but the underground mushroom type. I've never had those, but apparently they're prized enough and worth enough money that Ian Purkayastha created a very successful business importing truffles into the United States when he was in high school. Maybe one of these days I'll try the underground mushroom truffle. I mean, they're only $110 an ounce on Amazon!
easy to make, too. (Although, I haven't made chocolate truffles in a few years. Maybe I ought to put that on my "to do" list for the upcoming weeks.)
Whichever way you decide to honor National Truffles Day, it's sure to be indulgent.
