Honey Recipes

Adding honey to a recipe is a great way to change the taste profile of a “normal” recipe. Blue Borage honey is a nice alternative to “regular” honey and less expensive than cooking with Manuka honey. This honey can help to bring enormous amounts of flavor to pretty much any spread or dressing – here are the recipes for Blue Borage Honey Butter and Blue Borage Honey Mustard Dressing that we love and you and your family will also enjoy!

Blue Borage Honey Butter

This recipe combines the creaminess of butter with the great sweet flavor of honey, making it the perfect spread for your morning toast, scone or other breakfast item!

Blue Borage Honey Butter Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. butter
  • ¼ cup Blue Borage Honey
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
