The Price of Delicacy
With fresh black winter truffles expected to retail for $400 to $600 a pound -- up from $250 a pound three years ago -- it's no wonder that 90 percent of summer and winter truffles are made straight into truffle products. The best prepared alternative is called premier cuisson (first cooking) truffles. These are small whole truffles heated with a minimal amount of water in a can just until sterilized. The truffles are well-preserved and the juice is very flavorful. A better buy might be sliced summer truffles in a jar with winter truffle juice. Tubes of pureed winter truffles and truffle oil are also available.
$400 to $600/lb. -- Fresh black winter truffles
$70/ 1.5 oz. -- Premier cuisson truffles
$56/ 2 oz.-- Pureed winter truffles
$25/ 3.5 oz. -- Sliced summer truffles in a jar with winter truffle juice
$10/ 2 oz. -- Truffle oil
(All prices as per Urbani USA.)
----AND...according to this website...$122 - $367 per lb.
The largest truffle market in France (and probably also in the world) is at Richerenches in Vaucluse. The largest truffle market in southwest France is at Lalbenque in Quercy. These markets are busiest in the month of January when the black truffles have their highest perfume. Black truffles on these markets sell between €200 and 600 per kilogram ($122–$367 per pound), depending on the quantity and quality of the harvest.
-----------AND, FROM ANOTHER SOURCE...
black truffles' prices can range from $55 to $125 an ounce.Source(s): http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geu5g.qH9GNwQA90xXNyoA... http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geu._Fo39GzjsBLJdXNyoA... http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0geu._Fo39GzjsBOpdXNyoA...
