What you need to make Honey Butter
- Grass-fed ghee (or butter)
- Raw honey (ASHLEYR for 10% off); Note: I recommend local or Manuka
- Sea salt (ASHLEYR for 15% off)
- Butter stick molds (optional)
How to make Honey Butter
Scoop out 1 cup of ghee and place in a bowl. To make sure you don’t waste any ghee, place your spoon near the flame or hot surface on your stovetop to heat your spoon before scooping out the ghee.
Store in the fridge and allow to harden. If you prefer, you can pour the mixture into butter stick molds. Once hardened, serve as you would a stick of butter.
If you prefer, serve softer at room temperature.
Tips to make the best Honey Butter
- Before scooping out the ghee, heat the spoon on your stovetop. This will prevent you from wasting fat. If the spoon is cold while scooping out the fat, there will most likely be some residue left behind.
- Any size salt will work, but coarse salt will give it a fun texture and crunch.
- To make this carnivore-friendly, zero carb, or sugar-free, just leave the honey out.
- If you prefer a softer texture, you can serve the Honey Butter fresh after mixing at room temperature. If you prefer a texture that is firm and hard like butter, store the mixture in the fridge and allow the mixture to harden before serving. If you prefer the shape of butter sticks, pour the mixture into these butter stick molds before placing the mixture in the fridge.
