Black truffles It can be an acquired love that grows on you so be prepared. Truffles are expensively rare mushroom type jewels that grow near oak and hazelnut trees. Truffles can, and are, cultivated but they are still rooted out by female pigs (although dogs can be trained to do so). Sows can seek and find the specific smell of truffles because it is so similar to androstenol which is the sex pheromone found in boar saliva. Hello? Try them and never judge a pig again.
