Very easy and very good! What more could you ask for from three little ingredients that you have around the house? It's slightly sweet with a nice hint of orange. It's a great way to perk up bagels, biscuits, scones or toast. But, I could definitely see many uses for this - over pancakes, waffles, muffins or thick slices of warm pumpkin or cranberry breads.

I made it exactly as directed. It was OK. Not great, not bad. Could use more honey.

Fresh tasting, light citrusy taste and pleasantly sweet. Pretty too, with its pale yellow color and flecks of orange zest. I know it will be good on a lot of things - toast, biscuits, even pancakes - but tonight it was wonderful slathered on a warmed slice of pumpkin bread. Nice treat!

I really enjoyed this butter. I was looking for something to make my homemade bread a little more special and this worked fabulous! I did add a little more honey for more sweetness. I love the orange flavoring!

Very good. I did add just a little more honey to make it a little sweeter. We ate this on muffins for breakfast...thanks for something a little different.

This was delicious and very easy to make. After mixing, place it in the fridge for about 5 minutes to firm up a little bit. Thanks for a great recipe!

Yummy! Added a bit more honey and used unsalted butter.

This was good! I used powdered orange zest and was tickled with the results. Thanks!
