Very Berry Strawberry Butter

My garden and the produce shelves at the grocery store are teaming with strawberries these days. I have been trying to use these luscious little berries of goodness in as many recipes as possible when, a few days ago, I had a serendipitous experience.

I had run out of butter for baking so I looked deep in the freezer and found a block at the bottom of a drawer. Since it was sunny outside, I thought I could help speed up the softening process by putting it out in the direct African noon sun. Life got busy, the day got hotter and I was left with a melted mess.

What to do with butter that has melted in the hot summer sun?

This small disaster happened next to my garden box full of strawberries, so that got me thinking and my berry butter came to fruition.
