5 Fabulous Fruit Butters

August 16, 2011

There are two different ways of making fruit butter.  The first is to cook the fruit until it is thick and sticky.  This method doesn't use pectin but the mixture will set like jam.  The second method is combining butter with pureed fruit or fruit preserves.  No matter which fruit butter you decide to make, they will be delicious on anything from toast, to yogurt, or even a muffin.
