Orange Honey Butter- Perfect for breakfast or brunch.

Orange Honey Butter

     Years ago we stayed at a nice hotel and they had this amazing orange honey butter for me to put on my toast. Room service breakfast is the one of the greatest things in the world. You lay in bed, pick up a phone, describe what you want to some stranger and the food magically appears. You get to eat in bed and then leave the dishes and poof, they disappear. The disappearing act doesn't work at home for some reason. Bummer.
     Anyway, back to this spread. It is one of the best things on toast or even on pancakes. The saltiness of the butter, the sweetness of the honey and the bitterness of the orange marmalade are a wonderful combination. It is perfect for a breakfast or brunch when you have company or just horde it for yourself. I've also given it in a jar, with a loaf of good bread and some coffee as a hostess gift for a dinner party. I think giving them something for the next morning's breakfast is a great hostess gift for an evening party.

This is so easy!
1 stick of regular salted butter- room temperature
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of orange marmalade
1/8 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Place all ingredients together in a bowl and  stir to combine. Place in jar or tupperware container in the fridge. Lasts for up to a month in the refrigerator or freeze for up to a year.

Hi, It looks easy enough,,I wonder if you could use a different jelly? Would that be to yucky? I'm trying this, the finished products looks way more complicated than the actual recipe and my family will be impressed!

You could easily use strawberry or raspberry jam in place of the orange marmalade. I wouldn't use grape though.
