My newest obsession: Strawberry Honey Butter

This recipe is my newest favorite summer spread. It’s good on Ritz cracker, scones, toast, and even beer biscuits! It’s like the best of both worlds: butter and jam without the nasty jam texture. Everyone should try this easy recipe.

Strawberry Honey Butter

1 pint of strawberries

2 tablespoons of honey

1/4 of a lemon squeezed

1 1/2 sticks of butter, room temperature

Place hulled strawberries in a food processor and blend until smooth. the original recipe says to run the mixture through a strainer, but I like the little seeds so I skip this step.

Place the pureed strawberries, honey, and lemon in a pot and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes and then remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

While the strawberry mixture is cooling, let the butter be softening up to room temp.

Once butter and berries are soft and cooled down, mix them with a mixer until they are well blended. After this it’s ready to eat, but if you let it sit for a while it gets even better.

Now everyone go make Strawberry Honey Butter – it will change your life (or more likely the size of your hips if you don’t share!)
