Strawberry butter

Picture of strawberry butter
Strawberry butter is an amazing way to take advantage of all the summer strawberries - plus, no cooking required! It's super quick to make and it's so wonderful on warm bread or rolls.

I always looked forward to having strawberry butter when I was growing up. It's one of the best sweets there is. :D

Step 1: Ingredients:

Picture of ingredients:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks - softened!)
  • 1/2 cup fresh strawberries, cut into small chunks
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
You'll also need a hand mixer and a sieve. 

Try to get the juiciest, most strawberry-smelling strawberries you can find. Greenhouse/unripe strawberries just do not do this dish justice.

I do not recommend using normal sugar for this recipe - it can turn the butter into a grainy mess.

Step 2: Prep + mix

It took me almost 5 large strawberries to get 1/2 cup of diced strawberries. I cut off any parts of the strawberries that were green or white.

Once the strawberries are prepped, put your butter into a bowl and mix it until creamy. Then pour 1/4 cup of powdered sugar into a sieve and shake it into the butter. Add the chopped strawberries and then mix well!

I like to keep mixing into the strawberries break down a little more and the butter turns nice and pink. Make sure you're scraping the sides down from time to time!

Step 3: Storing + servingi

I normally like to put this straight into the fridge after I make it, and pull it out a few minutes before I serve it so it softens a little. It's always good to put it in lots of little bowls to make serving easier!

I'd say it will probably keep in the fridge for a week, but it's always best right away. :D

can you substitute raspberries for strawberries?
Raspberries also work nicely, maybe better because they have more intense flavor.
However, raspberries have tiny seeds which might make this a bit "gritty", if that is a problem.

I'm sure you could! I bet they'd be lovely because they break up so easily.

Do you have to sweeten it? Or does the sugar make it a little firmer? Looks good!
jessyratfink (author)  artfulann9 months ago
You don't have to, but the sugar definitely helps offset the liquid that the strawberries add. I bet if you cut them beforehand and popped them in a strainer for a bit it might help. :D

Believe me: I ate this with bread (made by Jessy, too) and it's heavenly! Jessy is one of the best chefs ever! At least, one of my favorites.
