How to make Strawberry Butter?
Start by preparing 10-15 large strawberries. Make sure they are at room temperature. Wash them quickly and drain all the water. Chop the top with the leafy part and cut the strawberries into small pieces.
Take out ½ cup unsalted butter from the refrigerator and keep on the counter for 30-40 minutes until it is slightly softened.
Add the softened butter, 3 tablespoon honey, and 2 teaspoon lemon juice to the jar of a food processor and blend at medium speed until the butter is light and fluffy. Keep scraping the sides of the jar a few times while blending.
Add the chopped strawberries to the jar and blend again until combined. Keep scraping the sides of the jar a few times.
Transfer the butter to a glass container, secure the lightly, and store in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Bring the butter to room temperature before using it to make sure it spreads evenly.
