Cooking with Honey
Recommended Honeys for Compound Butter
What's more decadent than honey butter? It's something special on menus at chic restaurants and a lot of us think of honey butter as a treat, but it's actually very simple and satisfying to make!
The most difficult part of making honey butter is, in our opinion, choosing your honey! Monofloral honeys (also known as varietal or blossom honeys) each have a distinctive flavor profile thanks to their pollen. The good news is, color is a great indication of flavor. Lighter colored honeys will be lighter in taste and darker honeys will be more robust. For a light honey, we recommend buttery and cinnamony Alfalfa Honey or light and citrusy Orange Blossom Honey. For an amber honey you might try our Sourwood Honey with its notes of vanilla and anise. If you're looking for a dark and succulent honey, give Black Forest Honey with its notes of molasses and figs a try! Browse our full collection of Monofloral Honeys below!
