Easy Strawberry Butter

After picking strawberries for the first time, I developed this fruity, spreadable butter. Try making other fruit spreads using raspberries or blackberries, or a seedless jam like apricot, my favorite. —Julie Herrera-Lemler, Rochester, Minnesota

    Absolutely delicious! Can I use frozen berries?

    Haven't made this yet but it sounds like it would be great on hot pancakes in the winter months, except that where I live I'd have to use frozen berries. Would the ingredient ratio's be different if using frozen fruit? Anyone know?

    I mixed all the ingredients together with my hand mixer and poured it on my strawberry bundt cake. It was scrumptious!

    I do like this but found it just a bit too sweet, maybe cut back on the conf. sugar - but great on toast,muffins, bagels - especially good if you use fresh strawberries - and the appearance is beautiful.

    This was very flavourful but the end result was more of a spread than a butter. I know it says "spreadable butter" in the description but I guess I was expecting a more butter-like consistency. It's best served on room temperature items like muffins or crackers because it melts quite quickly on anything warmed like bagels/pancakes.
