Truffle Honey

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Rita1652

AHhhhh the Earthy Sweetness of Truffle Honey! Excellent drizzled over blue cheese, such as stilton or gorgonzola, Goat cheeses or any cheese you enjoy. It mellows the strong cheeses and is a total comfort food! A real delicacy with prosciutto, duck, fresh figs, apples & pears. Or jar it up in a sexy jar for a bridal shower gift;).

I ADORE truffle honey! Haven't made yours yet, but will be for this x-mas. Had this in NYC at one of Mario Batali's restaurants and thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Thanks so much for posting Rita... wish I was on your list!
