29 Days of Honey – Elul 5781 – Honey Butter

Tanking up for Waffle Wednesday

I’ve challenged myself to post 29 honey recipes in the next month – BEFORE Rosh Hashana.

Not just your Bubbe’s honey cake. As a beekeeper and avid cook, I can take you and your honey places you’ve never been before- culinarily speaking.

So let’s get Buzzin’.

The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by people. A honey bee can fly for almost 10 km, and as fast as 25 km per hour. It would take about 30g of honey to fuel a bee’s flight around the world.


Honey Butter?  

Why? Because we forgot about Waffle Wednesday.

A small and simple thing can be very satisfying. It hits the sweet/salty/creamy button at just the right spot to calm a savage craving in really small amounts. You may need more than 30g of honey for this,

30 grams of honey

but you can always scale it down. 2 parts butter to 1 part honey. Salt to taste. Oh nuts, I just gave the whole thing away. Read the rest. Maybe there’s a toy surprise inside?

happy butter is better butter

What you’ll need:

  • A bowl – cereal sized is just fine
  • small-ish whisk
  • 100 grams unsalted butter – room temperature. squishy, but not liquid
  • 50 grams (approximately) raw honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt – possibly more to taste 

How to do it

  1. plop the butter into your bowl
  2. add the raw honey & salt
  3. whisk until smooth and creamy
  4. taste and adjust the salt based on your preference
    1. hint – if it doesn’t taste like much of anything, add some salt. It brings out the flavor and sweetness of the honey. No joke.
  5. apologize to the waffle iron and any others present that you forgot to make this delectable condiment available for Waffle Wednesday. Promise to not let it happen again. Compensate by shmearing some onto leftover BeeThrifty challah.
