whipped honey butter
Sweet butter is our new favorite thing. I make butter like I usually do (minus the salt), and then add 4 Tablespoons of honey and whip it for about 10 seconds in the food processor. So Good. I've found that a 1 to 3 ratio of honey to butter is just right for us - so, for 1 Cup of butter, add 1/3 Cup of honey. You can also substitute agave syrup for the honey, making your butter authentically Southwestern.
I was feeling fancy with this last batch, and made some into little balls using two small measuring spoons.
There is arguably nothing better than fresh, sweet butter on just-out-of-the-oven homemade bread. Everyone should try it at least once in her life, and I'm certain the world would be an even better place.
