Summer truffle mustard: a culinary discovery
Before being a spicy and flavorful paste, mustard is first the seed of black mustard (Brassica nigra). It takes at least 500,000 seeds and 3 major manufacturing steps to obtain 1kg of mustard.
Step 1: Grinding the seeds
Black mustard seeds are ground into a fine powder to start the mustard-making process. This step makes the seeds more easily workable later on.
Step 2: Mixing with verjuice
The ground seeds are then mixed with verjuice, an acidic juice from unripe grapes that adds acidity to the mustard and makes it spicier.
Step 3: Grinding and sieving
The mixture of seeds and verjuice is ground and sieved again to properly separate the seed hull from the resulting paste. This step is essential to obtain a smooth and homogeneous mustard.
Step 4: Maturation and packaging
After these steps, the mustard paste is left to mature for several days to lose its overly bitter taste when first produced. Finally, it is homogenized and packaged for consumption.
Summer truffle: a refined and delicate ingredient
Summer truffle mustard is a subtle marriage between the power of mustard and the finesse of summer truffle. This truffle is harvested between May and September and reaches its optimal ripeness around July. Less demanding than its cousin, the black truffle, in terms of humidity, it willingly grows at the foot of Mediterranean forest roots.
The delicate aroma of summer truffle
Summer truffle, discreet, brings aromas of hazelnut, fresh mushroom, cooked corn, or even moist soil. Its taste is less pronounced than black truffle, preventing it from taking hold of the palate in a dish.
