This is such a simple way to add elegance to your breakfast table. This is what the Homestead Inn Guest House in Maine serves with their morning croissants and bagels. It is much better, of course, if you make it with homemade strawberry jam. I have made it with blackberry and raspberry jam as well. It is a little something that will make your guests think you are a kitchen genius. Serving Size is an estimate.

This delicious and beautiful (seriously, so pretty) strawberry butter was the hit of our family gathering. Everyone loved it on croissants and even atop almond poppy seed muffins! It was amazingly simple to prepare too. I wouldn't change at thing. Thank you!

This is absolutely delicious! Served with Strawberries & Cream Bread (#121490). Be sure to bring to room temperature. Can't wait to try it on pancakes.

Such a tasty morning treat. Easy to prepare and tastes great. I used this butter on some toasted bagels, and it was so good. Definately needs to be room temperature to soft and creamy. Thanks for sharing such a great idea.
