Black Pepper Strawberry Butter

Servings: 1 /2-2/3 cup butter

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint strawberries about 5 to 7 strawberries, stems trimmed
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • In a blender or food processor, puree the strawberries until very smooth. Run the purée through a strainer and discard the pulp. It should measure out to be a little over 1/4 cup of puree. Season with salt and pepper.
  • In a medium bowl, add the butter, honey and 2 tablespoons of puree. (We're going to incorporate this slowly.) Using a hand-mixer or a stand-up mixer, beat until smooth. At first the mixture will separate but the more you beat the butter, the more it'll come together. Once it's combined, add an additional 1 tablespoon at a time, adding about 3 more tablespoons. This will total to be about 1/4 cup, plus 1 tablespoon. Give it a taste and add a bit more honey or salt, if you like.
  • Serve at room temperature, if you like, or you can transfer it to the refrigerator until you're ready to use it.
