Orange Honey Butter that is perfect for muffins, breads and the perfect addition to breakfast or brunch.
We just love the bright flavor of orange zest. We like to indulge sometimes and it’s nice to treat yourself a bit, especially around the holidays. This Easter we’re making a bunch of healthy treats and couldn’t help but make a personal favorite. This Orange Honey Butter Recipe is sweet, a little salty, citrusy and creamy with grass-fed butter.
When you buy butter you want it to be a nice yellow color, not pale yellow!
When you buy a quality butter you can really tell the difference in your final product. We love to pair grassfed butter with fresh orange zest and local raw honey. We recommend buying and using an organic orange.

Yum! I will be trying this recipe summer brunches!
I make a lemon honey butter. I guess it is about time I tried orange.
We’re huge fans of citrus butters. We even make a strawberry orange honey butter!
Can this be canned for long term storage?
We have put in the freezer before, but not canned.
Aww, thank you!! 🙂
Courtney I have not yet made the honey orange butter but wonder if it could be frozen. Am looking to make ahead some special things for company who are coming in a few weeks.
The texture of the orange may change a bit, but it should be good still! 🙂
Does it matter if the butter is salted or not?
We always opt for salted unless baking. Just updated the recipe card – thanks! 🙂
I tried to make this and my butter broke or curdled maybe. Thoughts? I used good quality butter from Vermont creamery.
Hmm, it really shouldn’t have curdled. Was the butter softened and room temperature?
Specific how to combine instructions. Do you mash or whip until smooth or does it comingle on its own ??
The butter should be soft and easy to mix together, hope that helps! 🙂
