Lagusta's Blueberry Black Current Truffles

Blueberry-Black Currant Truffles

These truffles burst with blueberry flavor and are pretty much just as terrific made with cultivated blueberries as foraged wild ones. They can be a bit soft, but the flavor is worth the annoyance.

  • 1 cup (260 g) ganache (below)
  • 2 teaspoons (8 g) cassis
  • 3 tablespoons (65 g) blueberry jam (below)
  • Garnish: blueberry powder


  1. Place all the ingredients, except the garnish, in a medium-size bowl and stir together until emulsified.
  2. Taste and adjust the flavor as necessary—though be aware that the more cassis and jam are added, the softer the ganache will be.
  3. Form into truffles as directed in the Truffles Master Recipe (below).
  4. To garnish, sprinkle with a little blueberry powder, or drop each truffle into a shallow container of blueberry powder, then turn upside down once set, for a blueberry top.
