Strawberry Honey Butter

This is perhaps the best thing I’ve ever made.

16 oz strawberries, hulled
4 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (I used a half of meyer lemon, because I love them)
3 sticks butter, softened

Cut the tops off.

Cuisinart them until they are liquid.

Pour the mixture through a strainer (I did not buy this especially for this blog. I did not).

Bring to a boil/simmer until it thickened, about 5 minutes.

I say until it coats the back of a spoon.

Let your butter come to room temp and put it in your mixer.

Whip it good.

Slowly add your room temperature strawberry/honey mixture.  I kept adding it until the butter would hold no more liquid. I ate the rest of the strawberry mixture with a spoon.

Eat. Sorry this picture sucks, but I couldn’t stop shoving my face full of this stuff to take a proper picture. I figure this will last in your frig for about a week, I mean if you have will power.
