Making your own Truffle Honey is the sweetest treat that can be added to a multitude of dishes. The big secret is that it is extremely easy to make. Here are a few of our favorite truffle honey uses: drizzled on popcorn, grilled cheese, mixed into yogurt, mixed with nuts, or even on fried chicken! Best of all, here is how to make truffle honey along with a simple recipe – it only takes 3 ingredients: honey, truffle essence, and a small amount of truffles.
A little info about the type of truffles you choose to use to make your truffle honey. First thing to make sure of is to use black truffles with the black truffle essence and white truffles with the white truffle essence. They have different flavor flavor and aroma profiles so it makes the most sense to pair them together. Fresh truffles are always recommended. They will impart the most flavor and best aroma. The reason you need the truffle essence for the making of truffle honey is that even with fresh truffles the flavor and aroma will dissipate over time. The sulfur compounds that create the amazing flavor and aroma will evaporate and leave you lacking the flavor and aroma you want. The truffle essence will maintain that great flavor and aroma you expect.
It is understood that fresh truffles may not always be an option. Per ounce they are one of the most expensive foods on earth! Canned or dried truffle truffles can be used. They will not add much in flavor and aroma but you will be getting all you need from the truffle essence anyway. They will add a great look to the honey that you cannot get from anything else.
