  1. Step 1

    Combine butter, lemon zest, lemon juice, poppy seeds, and honey in a small bowl.
  2. Step 2

    Place butter on top of a sheet of plastic wrap. Shape into a log. Fold one side of the plastic wrap over the log and roll into a tube, shaping with your fingers as you roll tightly. Twist the ends to seal.
  3. Step 3

    Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm. The longer it sits, the more the flavors will develop. Unroll from plastic wrap and slice.
