Ingredient Notes

Butter – I highly recommend using a higher-fat European-style butter. Because the butter is one of only 3 ingredients, the higher quality the better the flavor.

Honey – You can use any honey you like, light or dark. I try to use local honey whenever possible.

Salt – Fine kosher or sea salt will produce the best flavor. Try to avoid table salt since it tends to have a metallic flavor that can come through in this recipe.

Ideas For Serving

  • Spread on rolls, muffins, and bread
  • In place of regular butter on pancakes, waffles, and french toast
  • Over roasted veggies such as carrots, parsnips, and radishes
  • On top of seared steak with some garlic and rosemary

Tips & Tricks

  • If you only have salted butter, that will work too. Just leave out the additional salt.
  • The butter should be softened but not too soft. You want it to easily cream together with the honey and salt but not be melted.
  • For a prettier presentation, drizzle the honey butter with extra honey and sprinkle on a bit of flaky salt.

Storage

Store the honey butter in an airtight container. It should keep at room temperature for 1 to 2 days but for longer storage, up to 1 month, it will need to be kept in the fridge.

Simply pull it out of the fridge 20 to 30 minutes before you want to use it so that it can soften a bit.

The honey butter can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
