Ingredients

Berry Butter:

  • 4 sticks softened unsalted butter
  • 1 oz jar of Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest preserves you can use any kind you like, for this one I used cranberry raspberry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon citric acid

Honey Butter:

  • 4 sticks softened unsalted butter
  • 1 cup honey

Instructions

Berry Butter:

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, add your softened, room temperature butter, the Orchard’s Finest preserves, honey & citric acid. Why do I use citric acid? I like to add a bit of a tart kick to the butter without adding the liquid from the lemon. The liquid can cause issues with the consistency and I have found that citric acid is a perfect solution. You can get the hit of tart flavor without the consistency issues. I found citric acid at my local market in the canning section. If you can’t find it, you can always order it online.  I LOVE it and use it in all kinds of recipes.
  • Once you have all your ingredients in your mixer, turn your mixer on high and whip the butter for several minutes. Once it has whipped well and is nice and fluffy, take your mixture and add it to your sterilized 4 ounce Ball jars.  Fill to the top and place the lid on tight. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. This recipe also can be stored in the freezer really well.

Honey Butter:

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, place softened room temperature butter and honey. Whip on high for several minutes until light and fluffy. Once finished, carefully spoon into sterilized 4 ounce ball jars and replace the lid. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use. This butter also freezes well.
