Description

I love this during the holidays. I first received some as a gift in a jar and enjoyed every bit of it, especially on toast or on homemade rolls or lefse. Make some for yourself and some to share with others.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Butter, Softened To Room Temperature
  • ½ cups Chopped Fresh Cranberries
  • ½ cups Honey
  • 1 whole Orange (just The Zest)

Preparation

Such an easy recipe, it’s 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!

Combine softened butter, chopped fresh cranberries, honey to taste (about 1/2 cup) and the ZEST ONLY of one orange. Mix until well blended.

You’ll need to store this in the refrigerator.

I’ve made this twice now and it is wonderful! I couldn’t help but add a little squeeze of the orange juice to the mix. Also, I quite accidentally used half salted and half unsalted butter on the second batch; still wonderful.

This is a wonderful recipe. I served it for a dinner party, and everyone loved it. I’ve sent it to potlucks, and I have given it to friends as gifts. Thank you.

I made this last night and it was WONDERFUL! I used lemon instead of orange simply because I prefer lemon to orange and I think that lemon and cranberry is a delightful combination. I digress. I added a little more honey and the butter tasted great. I chilled it while making waffles and the flavour got even better as it sat. There’s a recipe by Emily for Gingerbread Waffles on this site, goes amazingly well with the cranberry butter. I’m a hero at home and noone has to know how simple it was to make. :)

I made this for Thanksgiving, and my whole family raved about it. Super easy and good. I think this would make a nice little homemade gift for the holidays.
