You may be wondering where I hit my head to even be considering strawberries and butter together, but hear me out. I (unsuccessfully, thanks to a bum oven) made popovers last weekend. While I was trying to figure out what went wrong, I stumbled upon a comment where the person said they enjoyed their popovers with strawberry butter. I immediately thought that was a fantastic idea. David was not so sure about it, but since I do all the cooking, baking and general experimentation in the kitchen, he didn't have much of a choice.
I had intended to make my own butter to really elevate it, but I was a little pressed for time, so I went with the butter already in my fridge.
This is really easy to make and tastes divine! My kids beg for it, and David was using crumbs to wipe up the little bit that was left on his plate. It's really that good. You can use it on pancakes, waffles, toast, crumpets, biscuits, popovers, you get the idea.
Although this picture I took shows my cubed butter in the Nutribullet jar, I would advise against using it. It just doesn't mix it around enough and I had to stir it and push it around numerous times to get the correct consistency.
I would also suggest a taller bowl when mixing in the strawberries - I make this mistake all the time - otherwise everything just splatters everywhere..
Without further ado, I present to you:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
4 medium-large ripe strawberries, chopped
1/4 cup fine sugar
1/4 tsp Pink Himalayan salt
Cream together the butter, salt and sugar using a blender or food processor.
Transfer to a TALL bowl - ignore my mistake above and you will not have splatters all over your kitchen. Add your strawberries.
Mix it all together, you want chunks of strawberries, but not too many. I used the whisk attachment on my handblender, it worked really well (except for the aforementioned splatter).
Voila! You have strawberry butter. I got about 3 cups worth. We used one right away and half of the second on day two. The third is in the freezer right now, but will come out on Saturday when I have family over for the boy's birthday party. I'm thinking scones...
