Raw Spring Honey With Black Truffles - 250g
This is a gourmet honey, produced by the bees of Ivan. Truffle honey has a sweet and earthy fragrance and the taste can be quite strong. Only use a small amount as otherwise, the fragrance can be overwhelming.
Where does the honey come from?: This product comes from the area of Gorna Oryahovitsa in Bulgaria. It is situated at the northern foothill of the Tarnovo Elevations, a beautiful landscape with a rich and ancient history.
Who produces this honey?: This gourmet honey comes from Ivan. A young and fastidious beekeeper who is very concerned with details and getting it just right. He has a systematic approach and colour codes his hives, this stops the bees getting confused and heading to the wrong hive where a fight may ensue! Ivan is going through organic certification and is in his last year, it takes 3 years to obtain.
What about the plant the honey comes from?: This honey comes from many flowers, such as mint, dandelion, thistle and chamomile that grow in the wild meadows around the remote villages. Then truffles from the surrounding forest are located with the aid of pigs, picked and steeped in the honey. This produces a gourmet food, to be enjoyed on special occasions.
Common Uses: Truffle honey is better with savoury dishes. For instance, truffle honey goes nicely poured over a baked brie or in a sandwich with manchego cheese or on a freshly baked ciabatta.
Please know that raw honey does crystalise and this is a natural process that occurs mainly due to the natural glucose in raw honey. For more information on why honey sets visit this article and for a more scientific explanation go to wikipedia.
