The fermented honey found on top of Butcher & Bee’s signature whipped feta appetizer is now available online for $10.25 in bottles ready to be shipped nationwide.  

To make the fermented honey, Butcher & Bee adds a touch of water to local Bee Well Honey Farm honey, which “allows healthy bacteria to enter the mix.” B&B then adds reduced liquid from cooked fresh peppers, giving the honey a little kick. 

“We first featured our whipped feta dish topped with house made fermented honey in 2015 and since then it’s sort of taken on a life of its own, especially on social media,” Butcher & Bee director of marketing Tara Pate said in a press release. “We wanted to give people the opportunity to recreate it at home … It’s not a condiment that is readily available on grocery shelves. So, we decided to bottle it.” 

According to Pate, the fermented honey tastes great with whipped feta, but it also works on fried chicken, turkey sandwiches and even cocktails.
