This strawberry butter is fluffy, full of real strawberry flavour, and just so pretty! The perfect addition to your pancakes, waffles, or biscuits.
1 cup (170 g) strawberries, stems removed and chopped
1/2 cup (113 g) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tbsp + 2 tsp sugar, divided
1/4 tsp salt (I use fleur de sel)
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Cook chopped strawberries and 1 tbsp sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, strain into a bowl. I used a spoon to press out at much strawberry juice as possible. Set bowl aside and discard pulp.
Using a hand mixer or stand mixer with paddle attachment, whip butter for about 4 minutes until light and fluffy.
Add in strawberry juice, salt, pepper, and 2 tsp sugar. Mix until well incorporated. Taste test, and mix in some more sugar if desired.
Store covered in the fridge for up to a few days, or freeze for up to a few weeks.
