Yum, yum...yum...so articulate I know. This tasty butter was awesome, so much flavor, so perfect, tailor made just for me. I was in flavor heaven. Quick and super easy to make. I served it over carrots. I added the honey to the water for a subtle sweet flavor, wanted the spices to shine and they did, the carrots were awesome. Thanks for sharing a new family favorite, which I have also used with great success on fresh steamed green beans.
