Strawberry Butter Recipe
My recipe for strawberry butter is just as delicious as the flavored butter 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.
Strawberry compound butter substitutions
You can experiment when creating this strawberry 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.
Can I use other fruits?
Yes, you can try this with other berries or fruits. I have had great luck with pineapple and blueberry.
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 spreading fresh strawberries all over your toast with a little bit of butter.
While this recipe does have confectioner sugar, 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.
How to use fresh strawberry butter
This compound butter would taste delicious spread on these Irish Oatcakes as well. It should be stored refrigerated and covered to keep any other tastes from combining and keep it fresh and spreadable. A butter crock works very well for this.
