Truffles in the snow

Truffles are at their peak here in tennessee with the first real snow and what better time to go digging. Stephanie, Olivia, Adam and I joined Tom Micheals at his home and orchard of oak and hazelnut trees. Tom and Lucy (truffle dogs Tom showed Above) did there work in the snow, showing no signs of fatigue from the ice. We brought in 10-15 pounds. There is nothing better than a fresh truffle coming right out of the ground.
