Orange Blossom Honey Butter2014-02-15
½ cup unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
½ cup orange blossom honey, divided
Leave the butter out of the refrigerator long enough to warm to the point where it is just pliable, but not too soft. uing a stand mixer or hand-held beaters, whip the butter into chunks. Set the mixer on medium and slowly add 1/3 cup of the honey over the course of 1 to 2 minutes, increasing the speed as they begin to blend. The soft, viscous honey and the cold butter will emulsify to the perfect spreading consistency. Divide the honey butter among ramekins for serving. Top each ramekin with the remaining honey. This will keep at room temperature for a day or two. Refrigerate for longer periods.
Yield: 1 cup Honey Butter.
