Honey Spreads

When I wrote about resources for local honey, the product descriptions got me to thinking about honey spreads. One of my favorites from back east, which we can’t find here in New Mexico, is a blended Honey Maple Spread from Maple Grove Farms in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Fain’s Honey in Llano, Texas lists Pecan-Honey Butter, Almond Honey Butter, Amaretto-Pecan Honey Butter, Lemon Honey Spread, Cinnamon Honey Spread, and Creamed Honey, all of which sound scrumptious and any of which you could buy from them by going to their web site at It’s worth the visit to see the web site’s honey bee cursor.

Since we’re all about local food sources here, you could make your own, although I wouldn’t add anything to many of the wonderful-sounding local honeys, like the “rich-flavored, almost chocolaty” honey from Star G. However, here are some great-sounding recipes I found online.
