Welcome to Cranberry Week! That’s right! This week from November 4-November 8 we will be sharing dozens of delicious Cranberry recipes.

This is my second year participating and I’m super excited to share my cranberry recipes and see what everyone else is making.

Follow #CranberryWeek on social media to see photos and recipes of everything we’ve got going on.

This Cranberry Butter is my first share of the week. I don’t know why I have never shared it before. It’s fabulous. Even if you aren’t a huge cranberry fan, you will love this.

WHAT TO USE CRANBERRY BUTTER FOR:

This butter goes so well with so many things. It can be added in recipes, or added when butter is called for in a recipe to create a totally unique flavor. The following items are different ways that we have used this butter.

  • Rolls
  • Toast
  • Waffles
  • Pancakes
  • Turkey at Thanksgiving (spread a little over the top of a slice!)
  • Meat
  • Sauces
  • Seafood (used it with shrimp for a sweet and savory meal – delish!)
  • So much more!

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR MAKING CRANBERRY BUTTER:

This recipe is so stinkin’ simple. Three ingredients + water. Five minutes. You’re ready to go. But here are a few tips and tricks to help out.

  • Make sure your sticks of butter are at room temperature. Allow at least 30 minutes for them to reach a soft stage.
  • I have not made this recipe with frozen cranberries. Can it be done? Probably. I’d only worry about added moisture. I use fresh.
  • The amount of sugar that the recipe calls for can vary really more on taste. My cranberries were tart, but they were also pretty sweet so I didn’t use much sugar at all. You can adjust. Start low and add as you go.
  • I like to refrigerate my cranberry butter for about a half hour before

Cranberry Butter

Cranberry Butter

Yield: 1 cup of whipped cranberry butter
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Refrigerate (optional): 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This incredibly delicious, tart & sweet whipped cranberry butter is so easy and so perfect for any Fall or Winter meal. Serve at Thanksgiving and Christmas with rolls, turkey and more!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh cranberries, room temperature
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar (more or less to taste)

Instructions

  1. In a blender, puree the cranberries and water for about 2 minutes. Stop and scrape down the sides if needed. If you need to add a little more water to really get a good puree, add a tablespoon at a time.
  2. Add the sugar and blend again for about 30 seconds.
  3. Add the room temperature butter and blend for 1-2 minutes or until everything is well combined and the butter is a more "whipped texture".
  4. You can serve immediately, but I like to refrigerate for about 30 minutes before serving.
  5. Keeps for up to one week in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
