Bottled Summer Truffles - How are they suppose to taste and smell?

SG | Jan 22, 2002 09:00 PM

Bought some bottled summer truffles yesterday here in Philadelphia at a local gourmet store Zagara, after passing on some moldy scraps of fresh black winter truffles at a local specialty caviar/truffle purveyor. Paid $35 for 2oz of bottled "summer truffles from perigord"

Upon opening the jar, I was expecting a rush of strong truffle aroma, but alas nothing, nada, zilch. Thinking I had to cut it first, I proceeded to slice it in half sniffed it again, still nothing, cut another one up same thing. At this point I'm rather annoyed having paid a decent amount for junk.

Have I been taken??? Wanted to get some input before I march back to the store and demand my money back. Even my $8 truffle infused olive oil from trader joe has a more pronounced aroma.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
