Ingredients

  • 125 g good quality butter
  • 12 g freshly grated black truffle
  • 1/4 tsp salt (optional)

Instructions

  • Soften the butter by leaving it to sit in a bowl on the bench for 30 minutes to an hour. The time needed will really depend on the weather at the time you're making this.
  • Add the salt, then grate the truffle straight over the top.
  • Mix well to ensure the truffle is evenly distributed throughout the butter.
  • Put the butter back in the fridge for 45 mins to an hour to firm up slightly. This will make it much easier to shape back into a block or a log. If you're keeping it pressed in a small dish you can do this straight away then place in the fridge.
  • If shaping into a block or log - remove the butter from the fridge and shape as you wish. I used butter pats to shape mine back into a block. You can also roll it into a log in baking paper and store it that way.
  • Store in the fridge. This will keep its lovely truffle flavour for a good couple of months.

Notes

I have specified using unsalted butter here however, if you'd like to use salted butter just leave out the salt in the recipe.
