Orange Butter

Sweet cream butter flavored with fresh OJ and sweetened with organic honey. Tangy orange juice infused and orange zest flavored butter pairs perfectly with toast, pancakes, blintz, waffles,crepes, quick breads, muffins, hot rolls, biscuits and even vegetable stir fry. It takes less than 10 minutes to prepare this and keeps well for about a week in the refrigerator. The flavor dissipates after a week. Make fresh preservative-free butter with fresh ingredients.

Makes about 1/2  a cup

6 tablespoons Sweet cream butter/unsalted butter *Sweet cream butter is made from pasteurized fresh cream and has a longer shelf life.

3 tablespoons Honey * I used busy bee organic honey

1 tablespoon fresh Orange juice

1 teaspoon Orange zest * Zest is the colored portion of the peel, not the white pith which is bitter and unpleasant

Pinch of Salt

Method

Soften butter to room temperature. Cream until soft and fluffy. Mix orange juice, honey and zest. Whisk until combined well.  Serve soft. Store in a clean container for a week in the refrigerator.

It was refreshing and scrumptious with  Banana Buttermilk Pancakes.
