Tartufi Morra White Truffle Honey 65g

A Natural Double Prize

Tartu­fi Morra’s white truf­fle hon­ey com­bines two cov­et­ed fla­vor pro­files: the del­i­cate­ly fla­vored, much sought-after aca­cia hon­ey and the sharp, gar­licky bianchet­to white truffle.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

Aca¬≠cia hon¬≠ey comes from bees that take their nour¬≠ish¬≠ment from the Euro¬≠pean aca¬≠cia tree. It is much lighter in col¬≠or than oth¬≠er hon¬≠eys, more of a pale gold. It is slow to crys¬≠tal¬≠ize and pos¬≠sess¬≠es a lux¬≠u¬≠ri¬≠ous¬≠ly smooth tex¬≠ture. Blend¬≠ed with shav¬≠ings from the musky, sharp bianchet¬≠to truf¬≠fle‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČlighter-fla¬≠vored cousin to the Alba white truf¬≠fle‚ÄČ‚ÄĒ‚ÄČit is at once unique¬≠ly sweet & earthy, a tru¬≠ly cov¬≠et¬≠ed prize for those with dis¬≠cern¬≠ing palates.

PREPA­RA­TION OR PAIRINGS

Tartu¬≠fi Morra‚Äôs white truf¬≠fle hon¬≠ey works well as an accom¬≠pa¬≠ni¬≠ment for both sweet and savory dish¬≠es. On a cheese board, its unique fla¬≠vor enhances the taste of a vari¬≠ety of cheeses, from soft and fresh to hard and aged. It goes par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠ly well with dif¬≠fer¬≠ent blue cheeses like the Fourme d‚ÄôAmbert or hard, nut¬≠ty cheeses such as Pecori¬≠no Toscano Sta¬≠gion¬≠a¬≠to. You can also mix this hon¬≠ey into sal¬≠ad dress¬≠ings or glazes. For the exper¬≠i¬≠men¬≠tal bak¬≠er, it is also love¬≠ly in hon¬≠ey-nut bis¬≠cuits or scones.

HON­EY, ARE YOU LISTENING?

Aca¬≠cia hon¬≠ey is much cov¬≠et¬≠ed both because high demand leads to its scarci¬≠ty and because of the very pre¬≠cise cir¬≠cum¬≠stances need¬≠ed to acquire enough of this hon¬≠ey to begin with every year. 

Aca­cias blos­som in the month of May, gen­er­al­ly at the exact times that bees are only just start­ing to muster up the num­bers for their year­ly for­age (think of it as har­vest time for them!) but are also in the mid­dle of break­ing off from their moth­er hives to find new homes and queens to fol­low. Anoth­er deter­min­ing fac­tor is the year’s weath­er. Nec­tar pro­duc­tion requires mois­ture from rain, but too much rain wash­es the nec­tar away before the bees can get to it. With so many vari­ables at play, aca­cia hon­ey is well deserv­ing of its status.

Storage Instructions

Keep your hon¬≠ey in a cool loca¬≠tion away from direct sun¬≠light and make sure the con¬≠tain¬≠er is tight¬≠ly sealed. The ide¬≠al tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for stor¬≠age is from 13 to 21¬įC. Some man¬≠u¬≠fac¬≠tur¬≠ers will set the expiry date of their jars at two years after the bot¬≠tling date. How¬≠ev¬≠er, hon¬≠ey can last decades or even cen¬≠turies if stored properly.
