The above honey butter recipes use different proportions of honey and butter. However, it really depends on how you would like it to taste. I would recommend trying with a smaller proportion first.
As for the type of honey to use, it’s better to use the mild-flavored types. Many prefer sweet clover honey to make this butter.
It can last up to a week if stored in the refrigerator.
