Truffles aren’t just your ordinary variety mushrooms are they? No they are legendarily aromatic, they have a long historical reputation as aphrodisiacs. They produce compounds similar to tetrahydrocannabinol known as THC the active ingredient in marijuana that gets you high.
But truffles come at a cost, mature truffles attract not only humans but worms, and truffle worms love truffles, a perfect breeding ground underground and above ground as well. It can be wormy the darker and more mature the truffle gets with age.
