This stuff is so good. It is of course perfect for rolls and pancakes, but I also love a spoonful on my oatmeal or directly into my mouth. —simmering essence

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Put sugar, heavy cream, and honey in a saucepan. Turn the heat to medium low and stir until combined and it comes to a boil. Let it boil for about one minute and remove from heat.
  2. Place the butter in a blender or food processor (it doesn’t matter if it’s cold). Pour your heated cream mixture over the butter and let it sit for a minute to let the butter melt a bit. Add the vanilla and blend or pulse until it’s completely combined.
  3. Pour into jars or airtight containers and keep refrigerated. I let my containers sit on the counter until they’ve cooled down and then refrigerate. This yummy honey butter will last for about 6 weeks in the refrigerator.
