Cinnamon Honey Butter- Gifts in a Jar

Food gifts are always a favorite of mine.  These Cinnamon Honey Butter jars make a pretty presentation when you add a little bling to the jars, and pair with homemade bread,  pound cake, biscuit mix or even bagels!

I’ve made several batches already, and we wont mention how much my family has devoured!

Warning…… may want to double or triple the recipe because everyone is going to want some!

    Just found your blog through The Inspired Room and have added you to my Reader! Love this idea- it would go great with my little homemade goody baskets I make for the holidays. Now if I could just get my 34 week pregnant self motivated to get them done :)

    I just made this and it is very yummy! I think I will make some mini loaves to go with it… No fancy packaging though… This broke mama is recycling jars from the fridge… hope I can at least make a cute label 😉 Thanks for the great idea!

    Oh, Yum! Headed to the store NOW!

    I like spanish christmas in

    In your photo, you’ve used ‘clover honey’ & ‘salted sweet cram butter’. Are they different from regular honey & butter? I’d love to make these because of the rave reviews!

    • TidyMom replied on November 2nd, 2011 at 8:05 pm

      Any pure honey and real butter is what you need.

  18. Kate posted on November 8, 2011 at 6:55 am (#)

    Love this! Just wanted to let you know that I’m including it in my post “Top 10 Gifts in Jars” today Feel free to stop by and grab a button or link for your page to show that you are featured! Thanks!

    I just made a small batch of this butter… I wanted to test it before making jars as gifts and it is CRAZY delicious!! Heading out tomorrow to buy some lovely jars to make gifts for all the teachers at my sons school. Thank you for taking the time to post this amazing idea…. So simple, So tasty and (thankfully) So different from the run-of-the-mill edible treats everyone seems to give!

  20. Julie posted on December 2, 2011 at 1:45 pm (#)

    What a fun idea!! Can’t wait for the pound cake recipe too – so much better than another boring store gift!!

  21. Betsy posted on December 21, 2011 at 11:40 pm (#)

    I just made the butter (a quadruple batch) to give with mini banana bread loaves. It is delicious and so easy!

  22. Sarah posted on April 30, 2012 at 12:22 pm (#)

    These look awesome..just wondering on their shelf life ( assuming that everyone doesnt eat them up in the first week?) Thanks

    • TidyMom replied on April 30th, 2012 at 12:44 pm

      Butter has a shelf life of 3 months for unsalted butter and up to 5 months for salted butter

      • Megan replied on October 20th, 2012 at 12:18 am

        Is that storing in the refrigerator or in the pantry? I want to do these for my wedding favors & want to do them in advance but need to know how they should be stored

        • TidyMom replied on October 20th, 2012 at 7:09 am

          It’s butter, so you should store it in the refrigerator.
