First of all, a massive thank you to all of you who tune in to read, share, and cook along with my recipes. Your enthusiasm and support make all the baking, stirring, and occasional kitchen mishaps absolutely worth it. Today, I’m excited to share a recipe that’s as delightful to make as it is to taste. Our star today? Blueberry Butter! Yes, it’s a thing, and it’s fabulous!

Introduction

Imagine slathering your morning toast with a butter that whispers hints of summer no matter the season. That’s exactly what you get with this homemade blueberry butter. I promised you versatile, and here’s proof! Whether it’s spread on pancakes, dolloped on oatmeal, or even used as a creative topping on desserts, this blueberry butter will elevate your dishes with a burst of fruity flavor and a striking color that charms at first glance.

Ingredients

To make this mouth-watering blueberry butter, you’ll need:

  • 2 cups of fresh blueberries
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup, if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt

How to Make Blueberry Butter

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Prepare the Blueberries: Start by rinsing your blueberries thoroughly. This is key to making sure your butter is as fresh-tasting as possible.
  2. Cook the Berries: In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries and honey over medium heat. Let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the berries burst and the sauce thickens.
  3. Blend the Mixture: Allow the berry mixture to cool slightly, then transfer to a blender. Add the vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt. Blend until smooth.
  4. Mix with Butter: In a medium bowl, whip the softened butter using a hand mixer until it’s creamy. Gradually add the cooled blueberry mixture, continuing to whip until the mixture is fully combined and fluffy.
  5. Refrigerate: Transfer the blueberry butter to an airtight container and refrigerate. Let it set for at least an hour to blend the flavors beautifully.

Helpful Tips

  • Butter Consistency: For best results, make sure your butter is truly softened to room temperature. This ensures it mixes seamlessly with the blueberry puree.
  • Blending Tips: For a super smooth butter, strain the blueberry puree through a fine mesh to remove any skins before mixing with the butter.

Substitutions/Variations

  • Sweetener Swap: Not a fan of honey? Use an equal amount of maple syrup or even agave nectar for a different kind of sweetness.
  • Spice it Up: Feel free to experiment with spices—nutmeg or cardamom can add a wonderful depth of flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I use frozen blueberries? A: Absolutely! Just ensure they are completely thawed and drained well to avoid extra water in your butter.

Q: How long will blueberry butter last? A: Stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator, blueberry butter should stay fresh for up to two weeks.

Storage Instructions

Keep your blueberry butter refrigerated in an airtight container. For longer storage, you can freeze it for up to 3 months. Just make sure to thaw it in the refrigerator overnight before using.

The rich, creamy texture paired with the aromatic essence of real vanilla beans will transport you straight to dessert heaven!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons gelatin powder
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • Fresh berries, for garnish
  • Mint leaves, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Prep the Gelatin: In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water and let stand for about 5 to 10 minutes until it blooms.
  2. Infuse the Cream: In a saucepan, combine heavy cream, sugar, and the seeds scraped from the vanilla bean. Cook over medium heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is hot but not boiling.
  3. Dissolve the Gelatin: Remove the cream mixture from heat. Add the bloomed gelatin to the hot cream, stirring until the gelatin is completely dissolved.

  6. Garnish and Serve: Top with fresh berries and mint leaves before serving.

Notes

  • Ensure the cream mixture does not boil to prevent the vanilla flavor from reducing.
  • For a vegan alternative, substitute gelatin with agar-agar and use coconut milk in place of dairy.
