I decided to make a honey butter to go with my homemade whole wheat bread. I had this jar of lemon honey left over from a trip to Italy last fall (I know, I know, I’m so cosmopolitan!) and decided to use it.
This is pretty easy – just beat a stick of softened butter with 1 heaping tablespoon of honey and ½ tsp sea salt, and refrigerate until firm.
It’s an easy way to add some extra flavor to bread, dinner rolls, etc. If you’re really fancy, you can even form it in a butter mold for a special event.
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 heaping tbsp honey
½ tsp sea salt
· Beat all ingredients together until blended.
· Refrigerate for one hour, or until firm.
