Stolen Orange Honey Butter

This recipe isn’t only inspired from somewhere; it’s downright stolen from somewhere.
But…I can’t remember where. That’s just so awful, I know.
So all I can say is – watch Food Network kids, because that is where my favorite fella got the idea for this condiment. He described it to me late one night, and the next morning at 7am, I ran like a madwoman to the grocery store for ingredients.
Less ran than slowly stumbled, but you get the picture.
I added the cinnamon, but everything else straight from someone else…but who?
Honey Orange Cinnamon Butter

Ingredients:

8 oz softened butter OR spreadable butter
1 whole orange, washed
2 tbsp. honey
2 dashes cinnamon

1. Cut the orange into segments. Then, place the segments into the blender, rind and all.

2. Puree until totally pulverized. It will be pulpy.

3. Combine with the butter, honey, and cinnamon. Taste to adjust seasonings. Start with about half of the orange mixture than add more if necessary. That way, it won’t be too bitter.

4. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until the butter has firmed back up, then serve with toasted bread or muffins. 

5. Serve on toast, muffins, scones, or anything carbolicious. 

This recipe is so easy but it TOTALLY elevated our breakfast. This is the stuff that you see on the table of breakfast at The Four Seasons in Maui. It’s creamy, bright, and faintly spicy with cinnamon. The honey adds sweetness that does not detract from the bright, sunny orange flavor. Make this now and put it on everything. Actually, this might even be awesome on a sandwich with some leftover sliced pork.
I’m sorry that I’m a thief…but I’m not sorry I made it!
