Unlike many whole mustard fruits on the market, these are extraordinarily fresh, flavorful and chunky.
The Lunardi brothers of Al Dolce Forno in Quarrata (located a few miles down the hill from Tenuta di Capezzana) have infused delicate Tuscan acacia honey with shavings of Scorzone black truffles to sell in their bakery and delicatessen. The Lunardi’s wonderful crusty breads are sold along a large assortment of local Tuscan cheeses to which this aromatic honey seems to be a perfect match.
