The Black Summer Truffles (Tuber aestivum) spring up between June and October in northern Italy. They are found by specially-trained dogs who sniff out their hiding spots where they are then gathered by hand. The local mushroom enthusiasts each have a secret spot or two where they hope to find some of their own truffles from year to year.
Creminelli has hidden a few of them away in his Salami Tartufo and you will find them there each time you go looking. Their delicate aroma works magic with the all-natural pork to create the Salami Tartufo.
