Remove the truffle from its packaging as soon as possible and discard the existing paper towel. Ideally, it’s best to store the truffle in the vegetable drawer of the fridge where it’s not as cold, in an airtight container lined with an absorbent paper towel.
Truffles lose moisture and weight every day so it is essential to change the paper towel regularly to ensure freshness and longevity. If your truffle grows a little white mould, brush it off under running cold water and dry the truffle before replacing it in the fridge.
Another way to store your truffle is to place it in the fridge in an airtight jar with eggs for a couple of days. The truffle will permeate through the eggshell and infuse the egg, perfect for sauces, omelettes and scrambled eggs! Or you could add your truffle to a jar filled with Arborio rice for 2-3 days to give your risotto yet another dimension and lift it to dizzying aromatic heights!
