Total Time: 8 hours 5 minutes
Servings: 50


  • 1 Dehydrator (can also be done in an oven if it can be used at very low temperatures)


  • 100 g sea salt flakes
  • 10 g fresh black truffle


  • Finely grate the truffle over the salt. I used a microplane to do this.
  • Mix with a spoon to combine, and ensure the truffle is evenly distributed throughout the salt.
  • Place the truffle salt on a silicone dehydrator sheet and spread it out so it's nice and flat.
  • Dehydrate at 38°C (100°F) overnight (or for 8 hours).
  • Store in an airtight glass jar in a cool dark place.


Drying out the mix is necessary because the truffle is quite moist once grated. If you don't have a dehydrator, this recipe can be made in the oven. Ensuring it stays on a low temperature is essential though. Anything over 40°C (104°F) could slightly cook the truffle and reduce its pungency.
