Strawberry season is here and I can’t get enough of them. I had bought so many strawberries that I had to do something with them before they went bad.

Strawberry muffins sounded so good and they tasted so moist and just the right sweetness. After I made the muffins I had another batch of strawberries left, so I decided that I needed something to go with my strawberry muffins…. strawberry butter.

Soooo yummy!

The strawberry butter goes great with these muffins or with just plain biscuits, toast, bagels, or whatever you fancy. It’s so easy to make and it makes breakfast that much better!

So what are you waiting on? Go make you some butter!
