lemon butter, Member sammief2

I made this and it was good but needed more of something, so I experimented and came up with what I think is perfect for breads, vegs, and mainly fish. I took a stick of softened butter, a pinch of salt, 1Tbl honey and 1 tbl lemon zest only and beat it well. after beating, mix with a spatula to scrap sides and bottom and distribute the lemon zest well into the spread. Put into container with tight fitting top and refrigerate at least 24 hours before using. Its really great on fish and I have used it on baked sweet potato and carrots, broccoli and rice too.
