Recipe for Honey Butter

One of my very favorite brands, Savannah Bee Company  has the BEST honey around. Naturally I had to include it for this recipe for honey butter. They are such a beautiful brand dedicated to the most beautiful (and delicious) honey around, hailing from one of my favorite historic towns in the South. They even have a storefront here in Atlanta, so it was easy to run and grab some fresh honey.

I thought it would be fun to share a little honey-inspired recipe today, using one of their beautiful honeycombs. There is just something about setting out the whole chunk on a charcuterie or cheese board that just takes it to a whole new level when entertaining. The glowing amber colored honey is such a special touch, lots of hard work from the bees that is so enjoyed and appreciated by us. This honey is delicious, and perfect for this recipe for honey butter.
