As promised here is a simple recipe for strawberry butter.  It’s not pink like other flavored spreads you may find in your grocer store, just flecked with farm-fresh strawberries.  Try it on the corn muffins or atop pancakes and waffles.  It will even make frozen waffles a little more special.

Strawberry Butter


1/2-3/4 cup strawberries, hulled and chopped

1 1/2 tbsp granulated sugar

8 tbsp unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature


In a small, heavy-bottomed sauce pan combine strawberries and sugar.  Stir constantly over medium heat until most of the liquid has evaporated.  Add strawberry mixture to butter and combine.  Use parchment paper to roll into a log.  Refrigerate until firm.
