~TRUFFLES FOR GARNISH
Choose large round truffles, wash them
thoroughly and peel them, and put the required number into a saucepan,
pour over them enough chicken broth or champagne to nearly cover them,
add an onion stuck with three or four cloves, a clove of garlic, a bunch
of sweet herbs, and a little of the skimmings of the chicken broth or
fat. Place the pan on the fire and boil for fifteen minutes with the lid
on, then remove from the fire, and let the truffles cool in their
liquor. Remove them, drain, and they are ready for use. Another way to
fix them is to boil them ten minutes and cut them into various shapes.
The trimmings from them as well as the liquor may be used in making
