Welcome to the wonderful world of honey butter. This delicious combination of a couple of ingredients, so quick and simple to make, but is so versatile. It’s a staple in our kitchen – try making some to see why.
Take some unsalted butter and beat it until smooth. Add some raw honey plus a pinch of sea salt and beat again. You can do this with a paddle beater or whisk in your mixer or food processor but it’s just as easy with a fork. You can use salted butter if you like but putting the salt in separately means you can adjust to your taste.
This is just the beginning of all the different uses and variations of honey butter.
Here are just some of the ways we’ve tried:
Really good ingredients are extra important in a recipe this simple. Get the best butter you can and always use raw honey. Most of the honey that isn’t labelled raw has been treated so none of the natural goodness remains – it’s equivalent to using processed sugar syrup.
Sea salt gives a mineral flavour that’s lacking in table salt (that also has things added to make it pour better). The irregular texture gives little diamond bursts of saltiness too.
