The honey butter or sweet compound butter recipe is a collaboration with our friends of A Spoonful of Hope, a program spearheaded by Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. This project helps economically disadvantaged adults to receive a culinary course at no-cost to pursue a sustainable career in the food industry.
The signature line of products created by the chefs at A Spoonful of Hope includes a tomato basil Soup for Good. Honey for Good perfect for our sweet spread recipe, and to use in almost everything; shortbread Cookies for Good; and a healthy Lunch for Good. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to the culinary program that supports the community in Orlando.

We received Honey For Good and Soup for Good to create the honey butter recipe and help spread the word about these products which are available at Lucky’s Supermarkets in Orlando. But you can purchase online at aspoonfullofhope.org.
The Honey for Good is available with wildflowers, mangrove, palmetto, and orange blossom. The four versions are raw and unfiltered honey locally sourced in Florida. And the Soup for Good is a fresh tomato basil soup perfect for enjoying on a busy day paired with biscuits and sweet butter.
Make the Honey Butter with Honey for Good!
This recipe has only two ingredients: unsalted butter and unfiltered raw honey from Florida. The butter is softened using the mixer, and when getting a creamy texture, we added the delicious Honey For Good.
What is compound butter?
Probably you have heard before of compound butter. Chefs use this to cook and to include as a savory spread to enjoy with warm bread. Typically compound butter has spices and can be sweet or savory.
In French cuisine, compound butter is called beurre composé and used to enhance the flavors of steaks, sauces, and various French dishes.
Gotta love honey butter!
This simple butter has the perfect balance of creaminess and sweetness. A simple toast can become a heavenly bite by adding a dollop of this sweet butter.
We love it also on sweet potatoes and for making glazed carrots. There is no doubt that butter is a beautiful ingredient that we must have handy. Same with honey. I always have a pot of two in the pantry.
