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

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!
