summer berries are filling the market. why not try this strawberry butter for a special weekend breakfast treat? i made the recipe with margarine and it was just as delicious.
the spread can be used on toasted English muffins, French toast, pancakes, toast, or even cinnamon Triscuits.
i just love the taste of the strawberries combined with homegrown lemon balm from my garden. i only have a few recipes that use the lemon balm, so this one has added in nicely to my summer file of herbal treats.
to make the butter: bring 2 sticks of unsalted butter or margarine to room temperature. chop about 10 strawberries into small pieces. chop lemon balm leaves to measure about 2 tablespoons. measure out 3 tablespoons of confectioners’ sugar.
in a mini food processor, combine the butter and the sugar until creamy. add the strawberries and lemon balm until the mixture is well combined.
transfer to a small container for serving. refrigerate until ready to serve.
