Truffles

Vegetables

The Black Summer Truffle is moderately common in England, growing at the base of trees. They are usually the size of a potato with craggy black-grey skin. They can be baked wrapped in butter paper and served whole, or, more usually, used as an addition in strongly flavoured meat soups and pies.

John Ray's 'The Wisdom of God Manifested in the Works of the Creation' (1691) has "By tying a Cord to the hind-leg of a Pig, and driving him before them ... observing where he stops and begins to root ... they are sure to find a Trufle."
