Savini Tartufi collect local Acacia honey and infuse it with fresh truffle. Acacia honey is chosen for it's light amber colour and it's very liquid character. It is high in fructose. Fructose is a sugar component, and with high percentages of fructose the honey doesn't easily crystallize. Honey carries the flavour of truffle extremely well. This truffle honey has a fig inside each jar. This Truffle honey is an exciting ingredient that can be used for savoury and sweet cooking, or just straight from the jar. It's great drizzled over a mature hard cheese, like a pecorino or a goat cheddar or with Gorganzola Dolce or Piccante and the fig is an exciting addition that can be used whole on the side of a cheese or charcuterie plate or cut and used as an accompaniment for game, duck or pork.
It can make an interesting addition drizzed over a nut based dessert (like a walnut tart or a rustic style cake with apples or ricotta) or a cheese based dessert...such as a blue cheese and pear tart or an unsweetened goat curd tart with dates and nuts. Truffle honey also makes a great icecream flavour and goes well with chocolate. Cut the fig into pieces and use fro texture and flavour.
