Are your truffles too squeaky
Two days ago (Wednesday), during my lunchtime walk, I happened across a small "natural foods"(?) store downtown. It had only been open for three weeks.
Among other things, they had Mrs. Dash seasoning. I hadn't noticed that it's not available here in Brisbane, until I saw it and realized that I never see it in the grocery store. Bought a shaker of it.
They also had truffle oil: little bottles of oil, with slices of black truffle in it. I'd never tasted truffle before, but I'd heard of it, so I was curious.
Yesterday and today, I tried putting it on my microwaved veggies at work. It was tolerable -- but it didn't make my food taste better -- just "different" (and a little weird).
Since I was just tolerating it, rather than enjoying it, I figured it was a waste to force myself to use up the bottle -- because someone else would actually appreciate it. So I'm giving it to a co-worker.
But, now I know: I don't appreciate black truffles.
