Storage Information
If you're only making a small batch at a time, you may not need to refrigerate it. if it's in a sealed container, it can stay for a day or two on the countertop. However, if you wish to make a large batch so that you may enjoy the treat whenever you want for some time, there are two storage options.
In The Fridge: Honey butter can be stored in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Whenever you want to use it just bring it out of the fridge and let come to room temperature so it is easily spreadable for use.
In The Freezer: Honey butter may be frozen for up to two months or longer. Simply wrap it in plastic wrap (cling film) and seal it with several layers. Allow it to sit overnight in the fridge before using it, also use it within one month for optimum flavor and freshness.
