Corn Muffins with Honey Butter Recipe

Corn Muffins with Honey Butter Recipe

There's an interesting country story behind this recipe. I've worked at our local Farm Bureau office for 15 years. A friend on our women's committee developed it to give people new ideas for using farm commodities. I especially like preparing these muffins for my family on a winter night—along with a big pot of chili, they make for a very hearty meal! My husband and I have a farrow-to-finish hog operation here on the farm where he was born. We also grow several crops. One son farms with us, we have a grown daughter and our other son just graduated from high school.
