  • About

Fry bread with honey butter is a specialty of New Mexico. At her restaurant in Santa Fe, Priscilla Hoback makes a yeasted sourdough fry bread and serves it with pots of a honey butter that is good enough to eat straight. The honey is countered by lemon juice to make a three-part harmony of the sweet, the tart, and the creamy.
