’tis the season for fresh strawberries! The recipe is easy to whip up in a few minutes and you’ll have delicious sweet strawberry butter that you can spread on your next bagel, toast, biscuit, homemade muffins… whatever you can get your hands on!
I came up with this recipe idea when I visited the local market here and purchased way too many strawberries for one sane person to buy. I needed to find another way to use them outside of just popping them in my mouth (although I did plenty of that too). I do not have the tools necessary to can or jar fruits (although a goal of mine some day) and thought about my childhood when my grandparents would take me to local farms for their farmer’s breakfast and the farmers would always have homemade varieties of fruit butters (although the strawberry was my favorite).
Those were such treasured times with my grandparents that I will never forget. So in a sense this recipe is a nod to the many times I devoured delicious strawberry butter atop fresh biscuits at those farms with my grandparents.
I never realized how easy this recipe is to make. Granted, I semi-cheated by using butter I had purchased from the store, but still, this easy recipe has inspired me to try to make other fruit butters at home!
