Right before Christmas, I found this recipe for Cranberry Butter over at The Pioneer Woman. It would have made a Christmas perfect gift, but since it was so late in the season, I made myself a batch. Cranberries are available now at a reasonable price and this recipe was so easy to make and so delcious, I just had to share it. This butter is perfect on an English Muffin for breakfast or would compliment any other bread. You may just want to try this over the weekend!!
•1 pound Butter, Softened To Room Temperature
•½ cups Chopped Fresh Cranberries
•½ cups Honey
•1 whole Orange (just The Zest)
Combine softened butter, chopped fresh cranberries, honey to taste (about 1/2 cup) and the ZEST ONLY of one orange. Mix with hand blender until well blended.
It is easy to adjust the ingredients to your personal taste. Want more orange flavor? Zest another orange! Want it less sweet? Reduce the amount of honey. Make it your own! You’ll need to store this in the refrigerator.
