I need some help with ideas for the best way of preserving truffles to give them a long shelf life.
I've been making truffles now for around 3 years and have got to the stage now where I want to start to sell them.
However, I need to improve their shelf life from a few weeks to a few months can anyone help?
I'd really appreciate any advice you may be able to give me.
Sorry it took me so long to get your question posted. I've had a glitch in my software and only received notification of your submission today. Apologies for that!
Tell us more about what kind of truffles you are making and how you want to market them.
Do your truffles need to be refrigerated, or can they be left at room temperature (as long as it isn't too hot)?
Do you plan to sell them locally, or are you wanting to market them online and ship them via courier or the postal system?
The answers to these questions will help other visitors give you better advice specific to your particular situation.
There are many types of truffles that will automatically have a long shelf life by nature of the fact that they don't contain ingredients that need to be refrigerated.
Completely enrobing your truffles in chocolate is another way that will naturally lengthen the shelf life of most truffles.
Give us a little more detail and let's see what kind of advice some of our visitors can offer you.
