Lately we’ve been fangirling over one of our favorite Brooklyn brands, Bushwick Kitchen. Their flagship product, Bee’s Knees Spicy Honey, has the perfect balance of sweet and spicy so we knew we needed to mix it with some butter! In preparation for our Easter brunch, we to came up with a recipe that pairs well with hot cross buns. This spicy honey orange butter fit the bill. Yum!
1/2 c. butter
2 tbsp. spicy honey
2 tbsp. orange zest
Place butter in a medium mixing bowl. Stir the spicy honey into the butter. Zest one large orange. You should get enough for 2 tbsp. orange zest. Thoroughly mix the orange zest into the butter.
Once mixed, pack the butter into a ramekin or shape into a log using plastic wrap. Let the butter chill in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes prior to serving. How would you eat spicy honey orange butter?
