Scientific name: TUBER ALBIDUM PICO or TUBER BORCHI VITT.
The Bianchetto truffle is also known as the Marzuolo truffle. It is a variety of truffle that stands out precisely for its rather strong, slightly spicy aroma with a typical garlicky note; it is typically small.
The external part (the peridium) is dirty white in the younger specimens, which takes on a darker tone with rusty spots with maturation; the gleba is also initially whitish, although it then tends to become tawny and then purplish-brown, with coarse white veins.
Cleaning and Conservation
Once we have purchased the truffles, the problem of their conservation arises. Someone wants to say that the best place to keep them is the belly ... but it often happens that the purchase is made in anticipation of a particular dinner, with friends or family, and that a few days must pass from the moment of purchase to that of consumption.
When the truffle begins to become "rubbery" to the touch, it must be consumed immediately as it means that it has reached its maximum maturity.
Truffles must be placed in the refrigerator without being cleaned , the film of soil that generally covers them must not be removed: it defends them and preserves them from rapid deterioration.
After having wrapped them individually in absorbent paper (the one used in rolls in the kitchen) , close them in a glass jar or plastic container, change the paper daily or as soon as the humidity retained proves to be excessive and keep them in the refrigerator; only in this way is it possible to maintain their aromatic virtues even for several days depending on the type of truffle purchased.
It is advisable to clean them only a few hours before consumption; cleaning must take place under cold running water using a brush in order to clean even the most difficult parts.
After washing, it is also important to dry the truffles well one by one with absorbent kitchen paper, close them again in a container and let them rest for at least half an hour before slicing them so that they can regain their full aroma.
