Honey Butter
By Jim and Barb Reed, Mt. Desert
Down East Chapter

Honey Butter is wonderful on toast, muffins, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, etc.! It makes a great gift too! This recipe uses raw honey. “Raw honey” describes honey in it’s natural state; it has not been heated to retard crystallization and pollen has not been filtered out. The beneficial nature (enzymes and pollen, anti-bacterial and antioxidant characteristics, for instance) of honey is retained in “raw honey”.

This recipe differs from the usual one where the proportion of honey to butter is one to one. At the Windsor Fair, the following recipe was much preferred by the throngs who tasted the two versions. Thanks to Jim and Barb Reed for serving up a good treat at the Windsor Fair.

Here’s their secret:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup honey

Cream the butter. Add the honey and blend/whip until smooth. Store in covered glass containers and refrigerated. Variations include adding some grated rind of an orange. Or, add about 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Invent your own special blend.

Substituting Honey in Your Recipe…..

* Replace up to one half of the granulated sugar called for in any recipe with honey.
With a little experimenting, honey can replace all the sugar in some recipes.

* Reduce the liquid called for in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used.

* Add 1/4 to 3/4 teaspoon baking soda for each cup of honey used in baking goods.

* Reduce oven temperature by 25° to prevent over-browning when honey is added.

This is a list in the making. We would love to have your recipe for
that something special with honey in it. Please send us your recipe.
