I'm a convert

I've been making my own vanilla extract for over a decade and used to buy my beans based on reviews at a Infamous Global seller. Was never sure what I would get. Then I found this company! The beans were beautiful! Fragrant, moist but not too moist, easy to cut open to expose the seeds and each Bean was six to seven inches long. I'm a happy extract maker! 💝💃🥳

After cleaning the truffles with a soft brush, individually wrap each truffle separately with a fresh kitchen paper towel. Then, position these wrapped truffles within a pristine airtight container, such as a sealed flip-top jar. Every 24 hours, replace the paper towel and re-wrap the truffles. Return them to their container and keep them in the refrigerator. Repeat this cycle until you're prepared to incorporate them into your culinary creations.
White wines such as Chardonnay, particularly those with a balanced oak influence, can harmonize with the truffle's nutty notes. Additionally, aromatic whites like Sauvignon Blanc can bring out the truffle's subtleties. For red wine enthusiasts, Pinot Noir is an excellent choice due to its light body and elegant flavors that don't overpower the truffles.
