Commonly Asked Questions

How do you use honey butter?

Honey butter is more versatile than you think. First, you can spread it over your toasted bread or put it on top of your pancakes as a substitute for your regular syrup. Do you have a bowl of plain vanilla ice cream? Mix in some honey butter to elevate its flavor! Moreover, you might be surprised that honey butter can also be used for savory dishes. Remove the mayonnaise and turn it into a glaze. Try it with this classic fried chicken recipe and you’ll know what we’re saying.

How is honey butter different from regular butter?

Honey butter is perfect as a spread because it’s whipped, making it lighter and easier to spread. It has less volume compared to regular butter so you can’t use them interchangeably. In other words, one tablespoon of regular butter is not the same as one tablespoon of whipped butter. Hence, we suggest that you use regular stick butter when baking pastries.

Does honey butter need to be refrigerated?

If you want your homemade spread to last longer, we suggest storing it inside the fridge. This can make it last for a month or even longer. You can also just keep it at room temperature on your counter, but it would only be good for a week.
