Truffles are very expensive so this is a great way to stretch the truffles. You can use it by drizzling sparingly over your favorite pasta, risotto, omelet, crusty bread, or top a green salad.
- 1 fresh truffle, sliced very thin-shaved (1/2 ounce)
- 3 young fresh thyme sprigs (Do not use woody twigs or stems)
- 5 peppercorns
- 1 cup good quality light olive oil
Directions See How It's Made
- Clean the thyme well with a damp cloth.
- If you submerge in water to clean, spin dry immediately. Make sure there is no water on the herb.
- Pour the olive oil into a small, heavy saucepan, then add truffles, thyme and peppercorns.
- Clip a candy thermometer onto the side of the pan.
- Heat the oil over medium-low heat until the thermometer registers 200 degrees F.
- Cook at 200-225 degrees for 10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
- Pour into a sterilized bottle, cover and store at room temperature for up to 2 months.
