Yes GRPA this is the BEST and you are a 100% correct this needs real butter. We love this and now I know my grandmothers secret she used real butter (mom always used margarine and it was never the same). Thanks for the great post.

Well, we have another winner here. This is such a simple and delicious butter to keep on hand. I originally made it to try on Dad's Buttermilk Cornbread, but found that the combination was just a bit too sweet for me. I think this would be lovely with plain rolls, toast or even on a stack of pancakes. I will definitely make this again, but to use elsewhere. I normally keep margarine in the fridge for pan frying and misc... but I did use real butter for this (and I only use real butter when I think a recipe deserves it). This recipe definitely deserves the little extra cost of using real butter. I can't wait to use it again. Super simple (2 ingredients)... I can't believe I never thought of doing this. Thank you for posting. (Made for PRMR)

Excellent! As a young child learned on my own to create this wonderful treat. I added a good pat of real butter, hand made by my grandmother from her "milk cow", to a ? couple of ounces of honey, or sometimes sorghum syrup, taking my fork to the pat of butter and mashing on one side, then the other then stirring and incorporating it until it resembled a creamy dreamy concoction that was just this side of heaven good. Thanks GRPA for the memories your recipe conjured up! Will have to revisit this soon, its been a long time.

Simply wonderful! I used Land O' Lakes butter instead of the less expensive (and more watery) no-name brand. (America's Test Kitchen Cooking School Cookbook says the no-names have the minimum amount of butter fat, but said L.O.L. was quite good so there was no need to pay exorbitant prices for "gourmet" butter.) I used regular clover honey, but will use orange-blossom honey next time. I whipped this in my stand mixer. It was soft enough that I should have pulled out a pastry bag with star tip or a spritz cookie press to make fancy individual butter servings (chilled in the freezer) for a holiday dinner. Guess I'll have to make some more... Made for Please Review My Recipe tag game.

Perfectly lovely honey butter. I sampled it on this mornings raisin toast, yummy. It's a classic, so smooth, creamy and delicious. I'll be using more of it tonight in mashed carrots and I know that it will marvelous.
