Since our friends and a zillion kids are coming to dinner tonight, and I have extra Harry & David’s Meyer Lemon Marmalade in the fridge, I plan on mixing 3 easy ingredients together to make a sweet, delicious butter for the bread we’ll be serving.

If you have good bread to serve this recipe with, you’re golden.

If you don’t have good bread, save it for when you do. :)

There’s something about mixing good bread with a unique bread topping or dipping sauce or oils that, in my mind, can be a meal by itself! :)

Speaking of, if you live here in southern Oregon, I recently discovered the best bread around at Harry & David Country Village. It’s made local at a bakery in Central Point, outside of Jacksonville where I grew up, called Coquette Bakery. They make it in a commercial baking kitchen inside an old converted dairy barn. How cool is that? You can read all about this wonderful place, which I hope to visit soon! :)

Here’s how Coquette describes their products:

We’ve been called coquettish. We can’t help it. Our local, handcrafted, artisan breads and baked yummies just love to flirt with your taste buds. Upon sinking your teeth into one of our crusts or crumbs, you’ll want to close your eyes and savor the symphony of flavors that burst from our breads into your mouth. You might find that this brief love affair makes your world a little brighter.

We tried the bread and we’re sold. The very best? Gettin’ Figgy and the Gypsy Rose Marie were our favorites.

So here’s my butter recipe today that will wow your guests! It’s so easy, you just whip it, refrigerate, and serve!

You can use any flavor of marmalade, but Harry & David’s unique marmalade flavors will really work for you! (By the way, these marmalades are sold in glass jars which you can repurpose into a drinking glass. Buy 8 marmalades? You’ll have 8 new beautiful glasses! Very cool.)

Meyer Lemon Honey Butter + Coquette Bakery Bread = Heaven!
