Many years ago when I was in elementary school in South Dakota we had to come up with a business idea. Mine was called "The Truffle Tree" and was based entirely around a recipe my granddad made with me a few times. I'm taking no credit for this recipe at all, altering no measurements and not even changing any of the instructions (rare for me!)
My granddad has always been a big part of my life even though I have never really lived close to him. He used to tell me that a blue pig lived in his coal cellar in his Lancaster house. He took me dowsing in the round circle in Avebury followed by a trip to the West Kennet Long Barrow the day after the Winter Solstice. Gramps introduced me to "Jeeves & Wooster", Aled Jones and Roald Dahl. I've always loved photography because I've always had Gramps around as an influence because he always seemed to have a camera in his hand. The man seems to know something about everything but I think that has something to do with the epic amount of books he owns (also an inherited trait!).
So here it is...his recipe for truffles, in his own words with pictures from me!
