I tried to make garlic butter few years ago and it was a disaster. Now you almost convinced me to try something similar again... Thanks for recipes. Cranberries and orange zest sound like great start of experiment!

Great butter recipes. I've made the cinnamon, sugar and butter before for putting on toast but never added honey. I'll have to give it a try along with the rest.
