Fresh black truffles remain in perfect conditions about ten days after their collection at a temperature of between 0 and 4°C procuring a minimum daily care and cleaning. Fungo guarantees your delivery in 24-72h after its collection.
It is possible to freeze it and extend its conservation for about ten months. To do this, it is recommendable to wrap each truffle on tinfoil and introduce it into a freezer bag. It’s not necessary to defrost it to use it, but it can be grated directly frozen on the dish and keep it away.
Another way is to keep it in glass jars with brandy or extra virgin olive oil, which will give them aroma and use it to prepare good stews.
