     Thank you Wattle for the ideas.I have a little bottle of truffle oil in my refrigerator,maybe for 10 years and I never used it. I cook a lot of different dishes,also European food,but some of your suggestions are a little bit out of the normal,but I get the idea. What is rocket? I make beet salad ,but besides all the other ingredients has horseradish in it.

    Yes to all of the above~  and a drop on one's finger isn't half bad either!Wink Janie

    White is  better than the Black~   It's taste is much softer and it gently adds a wonderful  flavor to so many foods, usually adding at the very end of recipes~


    Black is stronger and is used on more bolder types of foods~ 


    It stores very well in a dark place, avoiding any sunlight~



    Thanks a bunch Wattle`~  I've been known to love the Truffle~ Stick out tongue
