How To Make Honey-Orange Flavored Butter

    Why choose between butter and marmalade when you can have it all? Keep it for yourself or give it as a holiday gift.

    Honey-Orange Flavored Butter

    Makes 1 pint, enough to fill 2 8-oz jars (pictured here)


    2 cups unsalted butter, cut into ½ inch cubes and at room temperature

    Zest of 1 orange

    3 teaspoons orange marmalade

    3 teaspoons honey

    Special Equipment

    Microplane (to zest orange)


    Combine all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, and mix with a rubber spatula. Butter should be soft, and ingredients should incorporate easily. Mix just until everything is evenly combined.

    Use the rubber spatula to spoon the butter into the two gift jars, and cover. It will keep for up to two weeks in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
