strawberry lemon balm butter

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.
