Fruit-flavored Butters

recipe
Fruit-flavored butters are always a hit, and they're super easy to make. Enjoy these spreads any time of day, with breakfast breads or dinner rolls. If you're feeling decadent, stir in a few tablespoons of finely chopped dark chocolate with the butter and jam, and spread on a hot biscuit or a slice of grilled pound cake.
