Truffle butter
(Los Angeles Times)

Peel the rough outside of the truffle with a peeler or paring knife before mincing, or use truffle scraps reserved from another recipe.


Mix the truffle into the softened butter. Form a log, wrap it in plastic and refrigerate.

Use top-quality butter. We used Double Devon Cream butter.
