Cranberry Butter

This is a great flavoured butter to use in many ways, but one of the best is to make gingerbread scones and use this butter. Try it with turkey sandwiches, perhaps. Besides, this is one recipe you can set aside for Christmas which is only four months away. Oops!


  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier or just orange juice
  • 1/2 cup berry sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup of room temperature butter

In a small saucepan on medium heat, stir the cranberries, Grand Marnier or juice, sugar and salt and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer until the cranberries have split open and the sauce has started to thicken (about 20 minutes). Remove from heat and let stand for 15 minutes.

In a food processor blend together the butter and cooled cranberry mixture for about 2 full minutes. Spoon into a serving bowl .

There, that’s all there is to it.
