OK guys... help me out here.
I decided to jump on the truffle bandwagon about six months ago. We bought some Italian 10% Black Truffle Salt off Amazon that had pretty good reviews, and when it arrived, upon opening the container, I nearly cleared out the entire house. It smelled so bad that my girlfriend refused to cook anything with it. It's still sitting in a drawer, away from light, in the refrigerator, in a glass bottle, inside another glass bottle, figuring that it wouldn't stink up the fridge that way.
I know different people react differently to things. But this has been unanimous... it stinks something fierce.
Is this "normal"? I even thought maybe I got a bad batch at first, since everyone seems to love the stuff, but everybody who comes over and smells the jar absolutely finds it revolting.
I almost feel like I'm missing out on something but don't want to spend $35 to get stinky butter that nobody will eat.
