Strawberry Honey Butter

When I was researching about honey and how good it is for you I found out about the “Honey Laundering”  that’s going on around the world and I did a post on it, too.

The upshot of the what I read? BUY LOCAL HONEY

It’s the only way you will know that your honey is real, 100% honey with no fillers like corn syrup or rice syrup – and that it doesn’t have lead or illegal antibiotics in it. Want to read the whole story? Read the post “Honey Laundering – Honey Smuggling”.

Anyway, in the process I ran across this recipe at Half Baked Baker and wanted to definitely  make Strawberry Honey Butter.

So here it is, Strawberry Honey Butter.

1 pint fresh strawberries
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons lemon juice
The recipe calls for putting the strawberries in a food processor which I don’t have so I cut up the strawberries in small slices and put them in a saucepan with the honey and lemon.
Boil for 3 minutes or until thickened.

Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Cream butter and strawberry mixture.  One word here: I had to rewarm the strawberry mixture to put the butter in as it would not “gel” together.
After that it was all good. Man, this is tasty. I served this to my neighbor, Elaine, and nephew, Mike, and they loved it!

Doesn’t this look yummy? It is!

Then I wanted to put it on something so I decided to  make biscuits. Good idea, right?     WRONG!

The biscuits came out like this: FLAT.

That didn’t stop me from eating 3 of them right away with the strawberry honey butter, though.

And I made this for hubster:

In between the biscuits is a generous portion of the honey butter and sliced fresh strawberries.

Okay, I know hubster likes Cool Whip and the biscuits were a little dry so he got a dollop of Cool Whip on the side. He’s so spoiled.

This was a really fun project. Now, of course, I want to make all different kinds of “butters”. When I go to my sister’s house in a few weeks, we are going to do just that!! It’s quick, really quick with spectacular results. AND TASTY!!!!

Has anyone ever made any different kinds of butters?

Thanks for viewing, my friends,
