Orange-Honey Butter

Saturday afternoon we were glued to the T.V.

We were laughing.

We were amazed!

We were watching a new episode of "Worst Cooks in America."

We kept saying things like,
  • "Are you serious?"
  • "You've got to be kidding me . . .my cherubs can cook better than that!"
  • "Are you serious?"
  • "Did he say steam the fish in the dishwasher?"
  • "These people can't be for real!"
If you've seen the show, you know that the famous chef has a team of terrible cooks.  The premise -- teach them to cook!

One chef taught his team to make orange-honey butter.

It sounded great!

So we made it!

It's great!

I think it will be delicious on:
  • an English muffin
  • a baked sweet potato
  • cranberry scones
  • roasted carrots
  • steamed brussel sprouts
  • pumpkin pancakes
  • a dollop of it on grilled salmon
  • gingerbread waffles
  • a smear of it on grilled chicken
  • blueberry muffins
It does take a bit of effort, like in a real small way.

But it's not hard.

I think you'll be delighted!

Orange-Honey Butter

1 1/2 cups fresh squeezed orange juice
1 TBSP honey
1/2 cup butter, room temperature

Squeeze the oranges, using a strainer to make sure there are no seeds.

Place juice in a sauce pan over medium heat.

Allow to boil until it reduces by half.

Add in 1 TBSP honey, stirring to incorporate.

Continue reducing until you have approximately 3 TBSP of "sauce."

Place butter in a bowl.  Pour the sauce over the butter.

Allow the sauce to cool just a bit.

Using a mixer, whip the sauce and butter together until well mixed.

Pour into a ramekin or small mason jar and refrigerated.
