Strawberry Lemon Butter

Strawberry Lemon Butter  is a wonderful sweet treat that is perfect on English muffins, biscuits,  or any breakfast bread. It is easy to make and is perfect for a weekend brunch or put in a small jar/crock and take with a fresh batch of muffins in a basket to a neighbor, mom, sister, or friend for a small gift basket.


This recipe is a combination of several recipes I've tried over the years, and I took the best of each and made this current one. I love the option of using any flavor of Jam I want, not just strawberry.


Jan's Tip: The powdered sugar is optional, I prefer a bit of the sweetness it adds, but it also helps to thicken the butter if your jam and lemon juice makes the butter a bit to soft, So I always add it in.

Strawberry Lemon Butter:
Makes approx. 1/2 cup.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (1 stick) softened butter (not margarine)
1/4 cup Strawberry Jam/preserves
1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1-2 Tablespoon Powdered Sugar (Optional)

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, till well blended.
Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
Use within one week.

  2. I bet a person could make batches of this put in 1/2 pint jars, freeze and give as gifts for the holidays or whenever.

    1. wouldn't that make just the yummiest, most simple gift? Perfect idea! Make now, freeze, then pull out when ever you need a quick gift or have your neighbor/coworker holiday gifts all "wrapped up'!
