Percentage of truffle for 100 gr of half-salted butter
maximum : 30%
1 truffle (depending on the percentage chosen. The higher the percentage, the better it will be)
100g semi-salted butter
Preparation of black truffle butter
Cut the butter into slices of about 20 g. Roughly cut the truffle into pieces in a small container. Take a deep plate, pour about 1/5 of the cut truffle into it, add a piece of butter, then crush the butter and the truffle with a fork, especially crush and mix well. Gradually add the remaining butter and truffle.
When you have obtained a very homogeneous mixture, take a stretch film, lay it flat on a cutting board, place the truffled butter on it, form a sausage, roll it up in the stretch film. Take the ends of the pre-formed sausage by pinching the film, then roll it on the board. You will thus form a sausage of truffled butter that you reserve in the refrigerator.
How to use it
There are multiple ways to use black truffle butter:
