Allen Bee Company’s Honey Butter
1 pound butter, in a mixing bowl. Let come to room temperature and soften.
¾ cup heavy cream
½ cup sugar
1 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla.
Mix cream, sugar and honey. Heat until it comes to a boil. Boil briefly – no longer than a minute, then add vanilla. Slowly add to butter and beat at low speed stopping to scrape the bowl until the butter is melted. Do not whip. Whipping will cause the butter to separate. Pour into wide-mouthed jars with a lid. Refrigerate. Hopefully, this will store for a long time (several months in the refrigerator) without separating. Should have a creamy texture and not granular. Really good on toast, roasted butternut squash, melted on ice cream, and straight from the jar.
