Freshly Whipped Strawberry Honey Butter is the ultimate springtime spread for any bread.
Whipped Strawberry Honey Butter will delight your senses with the taste of honey kissed butter and sweet garden fresh strawberries on any slice of bread, crepe or bagel.
Start with a cup of sliced fresh strawberries. Add them to your food processor and sprinkle with a teaspoon of sugar to help them release their juices. Then process until only very fine bits of strawberry remain.
Set the processed strawberries aside to macerate (let their juices out) while you whip up the butter. I am a big fan of real butter and would recommend using it over margarine in this recipe, although margarine would probably be fine too. I use my handy stand mixer and whip two sticks of room temperature butter on high for about two minutes. A hand held mixer works great too!
Add fresh/runny honey to the butter and whip to combine, stopping to scrape the bowl at least once while you whip. Then whip in the strawberries, again stopping to scrape the bowl. You want to incorporate every last little bit of butter into your mixture.
The incredible taste of freshly Whipped Strawberry Honey Butter is now yours to slather on any slice of homemade bread, bagel, crepe, muffin or even Norwegian Lefse!
I love this recipe for Whipped Strawberry Honey Butter because it’s something that was created farm fresh many hundreds of years ago. Milk the cow, churn the butter, harvest the strawberries and honey, and you’re all set. If you want to skip the little bit of sugar in this recipe, you can drizzle honey over the strawberries instead in step 1. This recipe is rustic but still delicious to this day! It goes to show that people ate pretty darn good back in the day. What a wonderful way to welcome spring with fresh strawberries, honey and butter. Enjoy it, and please rate and review this recipe!Print
