We came across this recipe for strawberry butter on The Kitchn website. It’s delicious and really easy to make.
The ingredients are:
12 teaspoons of Tsar’s Mixed Herb honey
240 g of unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes, at room temperature 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest 1/4 teaspoon salt 85 g hulled and diced fresh strawberries
Combine the butter, honey, orange zest, and salt in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment. Process for about 20 seconds, scraping down the sides of the bowl halfway through, until the mixture is light, fluffy, and well-combined. Add the strawberries and process until they've broken down and are well-incorporated in the butter but are still a bit chunky, 10 to 15 seconds, continuing to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed for even blending. The strawberry butter can be used immediately or placed in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to firm up first.
We also tried this using Ricotta cheese instead of butter… really tasty!
