St. Paul Brand Grows Community With Harmony
Photo from the Agricultural Utilization Research Institute (AURI) Krista and Steve started making Velvet Bees Honey Butter in St. Paul, MN in the summer of 2011. As a local St. Paul company that is family owned and operated, they are able to handcraft their honey butter in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. Produced under license by the Minnesota Department of Education, the delectable spread contains only honey, butter, heavy cream, cane sugar, and natural vanilla. Even better - the honey butter contains no preservatives!
What can you use honey butter with/ for? If you're able to refrain from eating the spread by the spoonful out of the jar, here are a few of the our favorite pairings (some recommended from the Velvet Bees website).
1. Velvet Bees Honey Butter, a slice of sharp cheddar, and an unseasoned cracker or bit of bread. 2.
