HOW TO STORE HONEY BUTTER
Store honey butter in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. If you keep it in the fridge, it will last for up to 6 weeks but you’ll need to bring to room temp before serving so it is soft enough to spread.
You can also freeze honey butter for up to 6 months.
