It’s Tips for Tuesday!
This week’s tip: Make your own honey butter for a special treat or occasion!
Making butter is super easy and boy is it delicious. Adding honey to it, takes it to another level. The next time you are in the mood for something special or just want to give your guests a unique experience, make your own butter! Pair it with homemade buttermilk biscuits 🙂
2 cups heavy cream
2 to 3 tbsp. honey
Add the cream to a food processor and let it run until the liquid begins to separate from the butter (about 10 minutes). Drain the liquid and squeeze the butter (but save the remaining liquid, which is buttermilk*). Mix the butter and 2 tbsp honey, using a spatula or hand mixer (add more if you want it sweeter). That is it! Wrap it in wax or parchment paper and store in the fridge for several days (or freezer for longer storage).
-* This is not the same as the buttermilk you find at the store, as it will not be as acidic. However, it works well in pancakes and biscuits, and doesn’t contain the additives you will find in store bought varieties.
I will have a delicious recipe on Thursday for not only the butter, but the buttermilk!
