Cranberry Honey Butter

This stuff is good.  I mean, spread it on everything, good.

It’s super-easy to make, too, with just a few ingredients.  Gather unsalted butter, honey, dried cranberries, orange zest, kosher salt.  Mix.

Possibilities for this Cranberry Honey Butter are endless.  So far, I have…

– eaten just a bit on a pretzel
– spread it on bread with oven-roasted turkey for a little pre-Thanksgiving warm-up

on a turkey sandwich…

– slathered it on pancakes

on pancakes…

I plan on…

– spreading it (heavily) on cornbread
– giving it away in these cute little glass jars (i.e., upcycled (is that the right “green” term for this? seriously, I would like to know) baby food jars)
– trying it on rye bread

Cranberry Honey Butter
from Taste of Home

1 c softened unsalted butter
1/3 c finely chopped dried cranberries
1/4 c honey
2 tsp grated orange peel
1/8 tsp kosher salt

To soften your butter, leave it out overnight.  Don’t worry, it won’t melt into a puddle on your counter.

Toss it in a large bowl and whip it with an electric mixer.  Add the remaining ingredients and beat until well-incorporated.

Transfer to an airtight container or into pretty serving dishes.

Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.

      It is really kind of addictive. I should have included a warning! 🙂
