It’s truffle week on my good friend Emily’s blog (that’s her photo above). And we ain’t talkin’ no Freedom Truffles neither. These black truffles are from the mountains of Oregon, her new home. She dug an
ass donkey load herself yesterday which is actually impeding her writing duties:
My hands aren’t really ready to type the story of my own truffle hunt. In the end, I spent about five hours coming through dirt with a rake to unearth about twelve of these little black truffles and came back covered in mud and with newly discovered back muscles.
But she’s already posted a taste of truffles — shaved in risotto — on Twitter.
I’m jealous. I will have to take her up on the Oregon food-and-wine tour she offered.

Did I tell you about the bacon-infused chocolate we have here in Oregon?
exactly what is a truffle? comes from pigs right?? what is it exactly and how do we get candy from it???
A truffle is a fungus. Pigs are used to find them underground. Candy is a different thing entirely.
Here's a link that might help.
