I’m as busy as this bee in the picture these days, so I’ll keep my recipe simple. I love this tasty spread. It’s great on scones, toast, gingersnaps, and oatmeal. I’m sure you can think of more ways to use this butter, too.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!


“He who would harvest honey must endure the sting of the bees.” –Breton proverb


½ cup (1 stick) salted butter **

¼ cup honey

½ teaspoon lemon zest

Soften butter to room temperature. Mix in honey and lemon zest.

**I sometimes splurge and use Kerrygold Irish butter.
