Can You Make Flavored Honey Butter Ahead of Time?
Yes, you absolutely can make this flavored butter a few days in advance! It’s best to store flavored butter in a glass mason jar with a lid. Just put the finished whipped flavored butter in the fridge until ready to use.
How Long Does Flavored Butter Last?
Blackberry orange honey butter can last up to 1 week in the refrigerator and up to one month in the freezer. Thaw frozen honey butter overnight in the fridge or put it out on the counter and bring it to room temperature slowly. This should take about 2-3 hours depending on the weather.

I made these blackberry apricot scones the day before I made this blackberry orange honey butter. And, although my husband and girls got to taste them, let me tell you that it was so hard trying to keep my family away from the scones long enough for me to make the butter and take pictures! They kept asking me, “Can I have one now?” Lol!
Do I really need a “DO NOT EAT” sign in my own fridge? It turns out, I do!
Only Four Ingredients
I love that this recipe only has 4 ingredients! What’s even better is that it takes less than five minutes to whip up.
You want to make sure that your butter is softened to room temperature, but not melted so that it can be whipped.
The orange zest gives this butter an incredible citrus flavor burst that I love!
Raw Organic Honey and Honey Substitute
I love honey! I use it in my cooking all the time. I only buy “raw organic honey” to ensure that the bees are not getting their nectar from flowers that have been sprayed with pesticides. Honey has an amazing amount of nutrition and health benefits when it’s in its “raw” state.
When you’re at the store, you’ll find solid raw honey and liquid raw honey. For this recipe, you’ll need the liquid raw honey so that it will whip up nicely with the butter.
If you’re on a budget, you can, of course, use regular honey, too.
If you don’t love the taste of honey, you can always substitute it for 2 Tablespoons of sugar or 2 Tablespoons of sifted powdered sugar.
You can read more about raw and organic honey in this article right here.
Whip the Butter and Orange Zest
Whip up the butter until it becomes light and fluffy and then add the orange zest until it’s evenly combined. I happened to get ahead of myself and added the orange zest with the butter before whipping the butter and it turned out fine like that too.
Add the honey or sugar
Beat the butter after adding the honey until well blended
Scrape the bowl
Add the Blackberries
Beat until Blackberries are evenly blended in with the butter mixture
Remove from bowl and refrigerate
You can serve the butter immediately after whipping. However, I found that putting the butter in the fridge for about 20 minutes after whipping allowed the flavors to marinade together more and the flavor was enhanced.
Serve and enjoy!
