Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup strawberry jam or jelly
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions

Begin by ensuring your butter is softened to room temperature to facilitate easy whipping. Utilize a narrow, deep glass bowl, which is ideal for preventing splatters and ensuring the butter whips up nicely. Employing an electric mixer, whip the butter on a medium-high setting for about 2 minutes until it becomes light and fluffy, ensuring a velvety texture for your strawberry butter.

Next, add in the strawberry jam or jelly, ensuring that it’s evenly incorporated into the whipped butter. Choose a jam that boasts a vibrant, natural strawberry flavor to ensure the resultant butter is rich and fruity. Following the jam, introduce a teaspoon of lemon juice, which will infuse a subtle, refreshing zing to balance the sweetness of the jam and richness of the butter.

Continue to whip the mixture for an additional 2-3 minutes, ensuring all the ingredients are thoroughly combined and the butter is luxuriously smooth and speckled with lovely hints of strawberry.

If you’re not planning to use the strawberry butter immediately, refrigerate it to maintain its freshness. However, remember to allow it to soften at room temperature before using it to ensure it spreads easily and maintains its delightful texture.
