My neighbor mentioned making grilled cheese sandwiches using honey butter rather than regular butter. Found it interesting, and talked with him a bit about it. Guess you can buy it premade or make your own. I think I will try. I have a batch of honey here, and was wondering what to do with it.

Homemade Honey Butter

Yield: just over 1 cup
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Sweet and creamy butter with honey and a pinch of sea salt. Unbelievable on just about anything.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (230g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature1
  • 1/3 cup (113g) honey
  • 3 Tablespoons (23g) confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon sea salt2
Directions:

  1. In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy. Beat in the remaining ingredients, starting with only 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Beat on medium speed until completely smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed. Taste. Add more salt (up to 1/4 teaspoon) if desired.​
  2. Serve with a drizzle of honey and/or a sprinkle of sea salt. Cover leftovers tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to a week or so.​
  3. Make ahead tip: For longer storage, you can freeze the honey butter. To do so, chill the honey butter in the refrigerator and then spoon onto a piece of plastic wrap. Then wrap it up tightly with a couple layers of plastic wrap. Freeze for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator.​
Recipe Notes:

Try adding a pinch of cinnamon! Mmm...
  1. Salted butter works too-- you can leave out the sea salt. Or keep it in for a more profound salty/sweet flavor.​
  2. Start with 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt and add more as you please.​
