Making Truffle Honey

We were delighted in late June when we arrived at the Capital Region Farmers Market  to find Terra Petra Truffles from Braidwood set up beside our stall.

We had been anticipating the arrival of truffle season with great excitement because we’ve been hoping to make truffle honey.  We hope you can imagine our joy when Kate of Terra Petra Truffles gave our family two big truffles to experiment with. It was treasure of the most magnificent kind.

The aroma of the truffle filled our home when we set to work to find the perfect truffle and honey pairing.  There has been broken hearts over recent weeks because we have discovered not all honey pairs well with truffle. For example, the truffle totally changed the taste of our award winning sunflower honey and it has been discarded.

With the passage of time, trial and error has triumphed and we have found the perfect honey to pair with truffle.

It is one of our award winning honeys and we are absolutely sure you will be delighted when you try it. We wont describe the taste, because we hope you will experience the joy and excitement we felt when we discovered which honey worked.

Sweet success of the a perfect honey and truffle pairing

All we will say  is – oh my – yes, it totally works !

The special truffle honey is available at Capital Region Farmers Market and from Tetra Petra Truffles for a short period until sold out.

Warm regards
