CRANBERRY BUTTER — Fresh cranberries, honey, cinnamon and orange zest are mixed with softened butter to make this delightful spread for bread, rolls, biscuits and more.
Over the summer, I tried a recipe for strawberry butter. I was pretty much in strawberry heaven. So when I came across a recipe for Cranberry Butter, I had high hopes. I was not disappointed.
In fact, I could be in serious trouble if I keep making butters that are good enough to eat by the spoonful.
So easy and quite tasty!! It is so lovely looking. I am going to make jars of this, and some Cinnamon Swirl Bread to give away to neighbors and clients at Christmas!! ~ Rachel
We love spreading this cranberry butter over toast, and especially English muffins, because all that sweet and tart buttery goodness melts right into the nooks and crannies.
You do want to keep this butter refrigerated, but it’s best served at room temperature, so remember to set it out on the counter at least 30 minutes before you plan to use it.
I find it works well to store it in small containers, such as four ounce Mason jars. Then you can bring a small amount to room temperature and you don’t have to worry about taking the whole batch in and out of the refrigerator.
It goes without saying that this is the perfect way to use up those leftover fresh cranberries that always seem to be hanging around during holiday cooking and baking season.
This Cranberry Butter also makes a fabulous (not to mention quick and easy) neighbor gift for the holidays. That is, if you can resist eating it all yourself!
Be sure to save this Cranberry Butter recipe to your favorite Pinterest board for later.
