Truffles

Ive never had them...
Ive seen them used is so many things, including ice cream...
When I told my parents that you could use it in ice cream, they said I was stupid, I was thinking of chocolate truffles.

How does it taste?



Also, how do you classify it.... I know it's a fungus, but when I was trying to find a board to but it in, I was thinking, mushrooms are considered vegetables... is this?

It's a fungus and I promise that ONLY on Iron Chef would they make ice cream out of them.

Maybe so, but why would they make it if it tasted bad.

Is fugus the only way you can classify it?

These are the same people who have made trout ice cream. It is not something the average person would want to eat.

Wow! SOunds great! :P


I've never seen that on Iron Chef. But I get your point, they'll make anything out of anything.


Now, can truffles only be classified as a fugus?

Yes. Just as mushrooms can only be classified as fungus.

People and grocery stores and ... mostly everything in the outside world uses mushrooms as veggies.
