Honey-based preparation with white truffle
“One day, several samples of honey were delivered to our company. I started to put some good truffle inside them. The sensation was immediately excellent. It was just a matter of figuring out the best combination of various types of honey.”” – Stefania Calugi.
The white truffle goes very well with honeydew. Excellent on cheeses such as pecorino, blue cheeses and parmesan. Try it with chocolate or vanilla ice cream and in the preparation of various desserts.
Characteristics and interesting facts: Honeydew is a sugary substance secreted by small insects that feed on tree sap. It is very rich in mineral salts and sugars, and when transformed into honey it becomes a source of nutrition for bees. The colour of the honey is dark brown, synonymous with high quality. It is the honey with the highest content of minerals and trace elements: iron, potassium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium. Its bitterish aftertaste makes it very integral with the aromatic note of the white truffle.”
