This Cranberry Honey Butter is a fantastic condiment, great for biscuits, rolls, muffins, and pancakes. It only takes minutes to whip up and makes a great gift!
This year for Thanksgiving I decided to make a double batch of my homemade cranberry sauce, but we had quite a bit leftover (I always forget a little goes a long way!), so I spent the days following putting it in cranberry hand pies, and muffins, and also making flavored butter!
I figured my strawberry honey butter is always such a hit, why not alter it with cranberries, and this Cranberry Honey Butter was born. We all love it so much I decided to make it as holiday gifts for my kids’ teachers. Put in cute decorative jars with a ribbon, who wouldn’t love to receive some?
- You can use store-bought cranberry sauce, but it won’t be nearly as flavorful as my homemade recipe.
- This recipe is best with some salt. If you only have unsalted butter on hand, add a 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt to start, taste, and adjust to your liking.
- The ingredient amounts can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled, and so on! Whip up a batch and put it in decorative jars for a simply delicious DIY gift.
Storing Cranberry Butter
This can be stored on the counter if it will be eaten within a couple days, or in the refrigerator in an airtight container, up to 10 days, then allow to come to room temperature before serving. You can also freeze it up to 2 months (thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then set out to reach room temperature.)
