No. 5 Cinnamon Honey Butter for Your Honey
Best cure to butter somebody up!
Gosh. I had no idea that something so sweet would flood my memory with the time I almost choked to death on toast and peanut butter. My Father saved my life (literally) by performing the ‘Heimlich Maneuver’ on me. I can vouch for this method. Y’all! It works! I ‘m here today (Thanks Dad) to give you a comforting September recipe. But I must confess. To this day, eating peanut butter or the thought of eating it gives me full blown anxiety. (My Daughters eat heaping spoonfuls of smooth PB straight from the jar and I can’t even watch or be in the same room while they slurp it up.)
Confession: I prefer crunchy.
I guess it’s this honey butter that reminds me of the day I almost died because who wants to spread a thin veil; similar to gauzy 70s sheer curtains (stained with yellow cigarette smoke - do you recall that look?) of anything onto bread? Hence the breathless experience I had. I was eating rye toast and peanut butter that was as chunky as the Grand Canyon is deep. You gotta go thick people. You have to double ‘schmear’. It’s the best and only way to enjoy it.
This recipe is quick. So when you decide to host a last minute brunch (Yes, they are allowed inside your social bubble. Aren’t they?) you will instantly become the kitchen goddess of your friends’ dreams - or if you have selected a streaming binge as your weekend activity, then this treat is so so so good with a big cup of milky earl grey tea or frothy cappuccino.
Oh. Let it drip off your fingers
and down your chin.
It is wonderland.
