Italian Black Summer Truffles
Black summer truffles are more subtle than the winter variety. Shave truffle over cooked potatoes, toss with herbs and a shallot vinaigrette. Thinly shave truffle over scrambled eggs.
It is the only lettuce type that does not occur in red form as well as green. Iceberg is the given name to dozens of cultivars of lettuce, all of which are adapted to specific planting regions and time periods.

Italian Cipollini onions are available year round.
Cipollini onions come in white, yellow or red varieties. Cipollini onions have petite, saucer shaped bulbs that vary from 1-3 inches in diameter. They have pale yellow and gold-colored thin papery skin with translucent white flesh. In their raw state, Cipollinis are firm and semi-sweet with a pungent flavor. They sweeten and soften dramatically when roasted. The peel can be difficult to remove but responds well to most methods traditionally used for removing the skins of a similar bulb, garlic. Try a quick blanch in boiling water or creating friction by rolling them between two pieces of silicone. If you do not need to retain the shape of the onion for your cooking preparation, you can also use pressure from the edge of a knife to break the skin away.
At just 30 calories per half cup, onions are relatively high in dietary fiber with no fat or sodium and even have 2.5 grams of protein. They are high in vitamins C and B6 as well as potassium, manganese and other minerals.
Caramelizing and slow roasting Cipollini onions brings out their best qualities. They have a depth of flavor that can hold up to herbs and assertive cheeses. Combine whole peeled Cipollini with balsamic vinegar, olive oil, butter and sugar, then saute until onions are cooked through and the sweet and sour syrup has reduced to a glaze. Toss quartered and roasted Cipollini with spaghetti, clams and roasted garlic. Toss whole Cipollini and brussels sprouts in olive oil, salt and pepper, then roast until browned and cooked through and serve as a side. Cipollini will keep, cool and dry, for up to a month.
Cipollini onions (Pronounced chip-oh-LEE-nee) also go by the name Cipolline Borettane or just Cipolline. Cipollini originated in Italy and the word means little onion in Italian. They are bulbing onions that are harvested about 100 days after planting. While best suited to growing in warmer, Mediterranean climates they can grow in other regions.
