Alternative tasting tips with the ingredients in this kit:

  • Thistle honey (miele di cardo), with its floral and enveloping flavor, lends itself very much to culinary combinations even rather daring: we can use it to accompany some meat dishes, fresh ricotta or, according to a more classic scheme, together with cheeses with an intense flavor. In fact, thistle honey tends to mitigate and make strong flavors more homogeneous. Alternatively, it is considered exceptional as a sweetener for black and herbal tea or spread on rusks and bread. It tastes very good on seadas too (a typical Sardinian sweet). It is excellent in combination with semi-mature cheeses such as pecorino or goat cheese.

A nice idea for a different appetizer is the following recipe:(whip 250g of fresh ricotta or cream cheese with 25g of honey, 5g of salt and a pinch of pepper with an electric whisk; put the mixture in a piping bag and keep in the fridge for 1 hour, then take a slice of soft bread, you have to brown it in a pan with a knob of butter (one to two tablespoons), when it is ready, cover with the cream, add some fresh blueberries and crumble a little crunchy bacon on top!

STORAGE
