This is my favorite of all the Mieli Thun honeys because it is so unique...and delicious! It tastes like a liquid Sugar Daddy...but so much healthier.
"Piunocciocream", or more easily called hazelnut cream honey, is made with Acacia honey and prime piedmont hazelnuts (variety: tonda gentile delle langhe), a name that immediately brings to mind the most aristocratic of Italian pastry schools. An IGP hazelnut with a full, meaty pulp and a particularly intense taste. They favor a medium toasting, since it only takes a few more seconds to deliver more taste and persistence to the palate. Just two ingredients, but both noble: Italian acacia honey and medium-roasted IGP piedmont hazelnut paste from Pariani.
Recommended on crepes, to sweeten coffee, or more simply on a slice of bread at breakfast: finger-licking good! So unique and healthy.
In the kitchen, it's used in pastry fillings and garnishes. Excellent filling for natural croissants, to emulsify egg yolks for preparing zelten, a trento dish, or added at the very end to risotto with taleggio cheese.
