I usually don’t boast when sharing recipes, but when it comes to this butter experiment, I feel entitled to brag!
I searched a few combinations of “browned butter” and “honey” and “cardamom,” and the most immediate results were recipes for cookies, streusels, cakes, etc, but what I wanted was that flavor combination in a butter. Just butter. I left Google momentarily, and I experimented. Once you try this flavor packed butter, you will understand why I feel entitled to boast about this experiment! After making enough for yourself, this simple, flavorful butter would make a great gift in a little jam jar for someone who deserves a little jam jar of heaven.
Browned Butter with Honey & Cardamom
1 stick organic, unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 Tablespoon clover honey
Heat a skillet or saucepan on medium heat. Add the sliced butter, whisking frequently.
Continue to cook the butter.
Once melted, the butter will foam up a bit, then subside. Watch carefully as lightly browned specks begin to form at the bottom of the pan.
Remove from heat and place on a cool surface to help stop the butter from cooking further (and to prevent from burning).
Pour the browned butter into a small container.
Add the honey and cardamom and stir to combine.
Set the butter aside to cool and set.
