My recipe for strawberry butter is just as delicious as the flavored butters you can purchase at the grocery store. It costs much less to prepare and I know exactly what the ingredients are in my version. I use fresh strawberries from our local farmer’s market when they are in season. When they aren’t in season, I choose organic strawberries from as close as I can get at our local grocery store. To keep this recipe for strawberry butter as inexpensive as possible, make it when strawberries are in season in your area. You can substitute other types of fresh fruit when strawberries are not in season.

Recipe For Strawberry Butter
You can experiment when creating this strawberry butter recipe depending on what you have on hand. I have made strawberry butter with honey using this same recipe and just substituting honey in a smaller quantity. If you have frozen strawberries instead of fresh, don’t worry. Just defrost the strawberries and carefully drain any excess water. Then follow the recipe to make strawberry butter with frozen strawberries. Be sure to watch the water content.
- 5 large fresh strawberries
- 2 sticks of butter at room temperature
- 1/2 cup (or a little less) of confectioners sugar
- grated orange peel
- Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
- Put it into a small bowl and refrigerate until it is firm.
- Spread on toast or muffins and enjoy.
Another benefit of making this recipe for strawberry butter is that it helps reduce the amount butter you are using on your toast. You feel like you are spreading butter all over your toast but in reality, you are really spreading fresh strawberries all over your toast with a little bit of butter in it. While this recipe does have confectioners sugar in it, it doesn’t have a lot and you do not taste the sweetness in the strawberry butter. The real taste of the fresh strawberries comes through. You can definitely reduce the amount of confectioners sugar if you want to.
This Strawberry Butter would taste delicious spread on these Irish Oatcakes as well. It should be stored refrigerated and covered to keep out any other tastes from combining and to keep it fresh and spreadable. A butter crock works very well for this.
