Honey Butter

This year for the family Christmas dinner we were asked to bring rolls and butter. I decided that I would make just rhodes rolls (the frozen ones). I made two pans because we have a lot of family at these parties. I knew one wouldn't cut it. I knew that I could make those the day of so they would be fresh and warm when people ate them.

The thing I could make ahead of time (2 weeks is what google told me) was some butter. Now, I thought it would be nice to have choices. If this was the one thing I was bringing to Christmas dinner I wanted it to be fancy. I had some cute mason jars up in my pantry that weren't being used, so I thought I'd make enough of each to fill them.



I had great expectations of myself. I looked up a recipe on how to make my own butter and everything. In reality, I made it easy on myself. I used 1/2 cup of butter from my fridge and cut that in half. I put half in the jar as regular butter (see, simple) and then made honey butter with the rest.



The way I made the honey butter was super simple, too. I let the 1/4 cup of butter soften on the counter. Then I put it in my blender (I've got a ninja, I'm sure anything would work). I added about 1/3 cup of honey. I wanted mine strong - you could add less. I just added 2 tbs at a time and then tasted it. (on bread... because eating straight butter is kinda gross)



By the way - SO good and so super easy to make. The only reason I used the mason jars is because it's what I had. You can go as fancy or small as you'd like. That's why I love this - it's so personalized. I"m sure you could make an amazing loaf of bread to put with it and it would make a great gift!

Enjoy!




Recipe:

1/4 softened butter
1/3 cup honey (or to taste)

Blend together and put in a container. Place it in the fridge to harden a little.

That's it. You can do the same thing with raspberries, strawberries or herbs for garlic toast.

My sister used to do something similar, but I never thought this was a "thing"! Can you keep the butter-honey (and for how long?) or once it is blended you have to eat it right away?
