Yummy Spice Honey Butter

Total preparation time: 5 Minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:
1 Stick Unsalted Butter
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Allspice
1/8 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
Pinch of Salt
Please use all Organic Ingredients.

Steps:
In food processor bowl with steel blade (Regular mixer probably will work
just fine.) Combine all ingredients: I use unsalted butter because I have
yet to find an organic butter that has organic sea salt without flowing
agents. The spices can readily be adjusted too. For a milder flavor halve
the spice amounts in the recipe or even go to pinches

Reduce Honey if using an especially pungent honey or find that the recipe is
too rich. Some organic honey is straight from heaven and a little speaks
mountains in flavor and sweetness. Refined or processed honey will
DEFINITELY not give the same results.

WHIP UNTIL FLUFFY Can be used right away. Fullest flavor when served room
temperature. Store in refrigerator for a day to let the spices and butter
mature together for an even more advanced flavor. Please let me know if you
develop some variations with different spices.

The heart opens as we savor the beautiful interior flavor which is the Chi
of the ingredients from so close to the Earth. The Earth nourishes us so we
may nourish the Earth. Let us be like those pure ingredients and nourish one
another boundlessly, endlessly and freely. This is the essence of
Compassion.
