black truffles available at Whole Foods, good or bad?

bigjeff | Sep 10, 2006 07:17 AM

hello all, I heard from a friend about these $4.99 jars of black truffles being sold at Whole Foods (in Union Square, NYC) so I went and bought about 4 jars, figuring it was dirt cheap. They come in small jars in "truffle juice", branded URDET (a spanish company, I believe) and imported by CHEESEWORKS (from new jersey). My question is, anyone tried these yet? I opened it up and they do NOT smell like the truffles I've ever eaten (oils, or infusions, etc.) and actually smells kinda bad but I'm just not sure. also, I've never seen them packaged like this; only in oil, or dry, or in rice. has anyone else seen these or bought these? thoughts would be well appreciated, thank you.
