Strawberry Butter

This is a lovely butter mixed with fresh puréed strawberries. Melt it over hot pancakes, crepes or scones and serve with whipped cream. It is divine!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter

  • 1/2 cup puréed strawberries*

  • 1 tbp icing sugar

  • 1 tsp orange zest

Method

  • 1.

    Soften the butter by leaving it out of the fridge and bringing it to room temperature.

  • 2.

    Puree the strawberries with the icing sugar in a blender.

  • 3.

    Lightly cream the softened butter by hand (a wooden spoon or fork works best), or beat it with an electric beater.

  • 4.

    Add the strawberry puree and orange zest. Mix until well-combined.

  • 5.

    Let mixture stand for an hour to marry the flavours.

  • 6.

    Pile the butter into cling film or waxed paper, shape into a sausage and roll the film around the sausage, twist both ends and refrigerate until firm.

  • 7.

    Just before serving, cut butter into disks, remove film from discs and place atop warm food at the last minute and let it melt.

Notes

*If you do not have fresh strawberries, you can substitute with 2 tablespoons of strawberry preserve.
