Homemade Honey Butter

Homemade Honey Butter 

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1-2 tablespoons honey, or to taste
A pinch of salt (optional)

Pour cream into a glass quart jar, screw the lid on tight...and shake! (Tip: When you get tired of shaking, pass the jar to a friend and ask them to take a turn. It's much more fun that way!) 

Keep shaking (10-20 minutes) until the cream has changed into a large lump of butter with buttermilk surrounding it. Pour the buttermilk out of the jar and drink it or use in another honey recipe.

Now use a spatula to blend the honey and salt into the butter. Enjoy your homemade honey butter on crackers, bread, toast, bagels, waffles, or muffins!

This was the way Princess Allison (2011 American Honey Princess), the FFA volunteers, and her young helpers from the audience made honey butter on the Christensen Farm Stage at the Minnesota State fair!
