My next door neighbour was in Syria on an archeologigal expedition. At the
market he was able to locate some desert truffles for me. He returned with one
specimen weighing approx. 500 grams, for which he paid $ 10.00. It has a
smooth outside skin unlike the french truffles. I plan to take some
photographs of it before consuming it and I will post them on the net.
Can anyone tell me the latin name for this truffle.
