Orange Honey-Butter Glaze

15 December 2009
Russ Faulk, Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, Grillmaster

This simple glaze is nothing more than butter sweetened with honey and flavored with orange zest and nutmeg. Brush it on almost any grilled fruit, pound cake, or other grilled bread for a final lick of flavor. It also lends a sweet kiss to pork and chicken.

Good with:
Seafood: shrimp, scallops, salmon, any white-fleshed fish
Poultry: chicken, turkey, game hen
Meat: lamb, pork


1/4 cup


    • 2 tablespoons butter, well softened
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
    • Pinch of grated nutmeg


In a small bowl, mix all ingredients until creamy and spreadable like icing. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. Soften to a spreadable consistency before using.
