Food Epiphany: Truffle Salt

Today I’d like to introduce you to what one my friends calls his “secret weapon” for grilled meat.  It’s truffle salt. What’s truffle salt you ask? It’s salt mixed with truffles (the mushroom kind, not the chocolate kind … although that would not be bad either).
Truffle salt is a great addition to the spice and salt line up in your kitchen. It’s great on roasted meats. It adds salt (of course) plus the taste of truffles. Truffles are a bit “meaty” to begin with, so they are an excellent match with grilled meats. It’s also really good on popcorn, along with some butter of course.
It’s not particularly cheap, but you don’t need to use a lot to get the flavor. It’s a perfect gift for any cook you know or a nice present for yourself. Try some the next time you grill a nice steak!
