Sweet Strawberry Honey Butter



  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup hulled and coarsely chopped fresh strawberries
  • 2 teaspoons of orange zest
  • Directions

    Using an electric mixer set to high, beat butter, honey, and salt until light and fluffy. This should take about one minute. Add strawberries and orange zest, and with the mixer turned off, gently crush the strawberries into the butter. Mix on medium just until combined, about 30 seconds. The acidity in the orange zest balances the richness of the butter. With a spatula, transfer the Sweet Strawberry Honey Butter to a ramekin and let it rest for about 15 minutes for flavors to meld. Serve atop warm biscuits and enjoy.
