Blue Ridge Truffle Honey

$12.00 USD

Shipping costs will be calculated at checkout.

Imaia Gigantea, one of our native wild harvested truffles steeped in Wilderkin Beekeeping honey. A match made in heaven! 

Imaia gigantea is also known as the Blue Ridge Truffle. It was originally found in Japan and the only other place it  has been found is in the Appalachian Mountains. 

It smells like moss, earth, cheese, funk, love, juicy, fruity, sharp - rather pleasant. Very difficult to describe and definitely not boring, it brings out the wild side of anything you pair it with. great with charcuterie, deserts, or mains. 




Just because a truffle is harvested in Appalachia, doesn't make it an Appalachian truffle - If you are looking for Tuber canaliculatum, keep looking! Most people hunting these in the wild are using their finds to inoculate truffle trees for cultivation. Hopefully soon they will be available for eating.

We hope to find some productive T. can patches ourselves, but in the meantime have been busy with hunting the Blue Ridge Truffle - Imaia gigantea.
