Four truffles inspired by our beautiful little mountain town. Each box contains two of the following flavors:

  • Raspberry-Balsamic: Local beyond-organic super sweet raspberries grown by Bart Colucci, who's been growing raspberries for over 50 years (!), are crushed whole and mixed with tart, rich balsamic vinegar syrup, combined with chocolate ganache, and sprinkled with fair-trade cocoa powder.
  • Coriander-Beet: It's not weird, I promise! A coriander-flavored interior is garnished with pulverized organic beets from Taliaferro Farms in New Paltz. For some reason, young kids seem to love these.
  • Fennel-Apple: Freshly ground fennel seeds are combined with and local apple brandy and garnished in pulverized organic apples grown by my friend, sweet farmer Billiam at Liberty View Farm, as well as home-grown fennel pollen. Pictured above. 
  • Blueberry Black Currant: Local fruit and local black currant cordial. The Shawangunk mountains that surround New Paltz have been host to blueberry pickers for a few hundred years, and the tiny wild mountain blueberries that grow there are unbelievable. Here are some pretty photos from when they were our Chocolate of the Month, and here are some blueberry pickin' photos!

Truffles are best fresh. Refrigerate upon arrival, but let them come to room temperature before eating. Enjoy within one week.
