If you love fresh strawberries, you’ll love this fruit butter. We added a touch of orange juice to liven it up just a bit and then capped it with a touch of rum flavor (optional).
2 cups pureed fresh strawberries (about 3 cups before pureed)
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
1/4 teaspoon rum flavor
8 tablespoons (one cube) butter

1. Puree strawberries, sugar, and orange concentrate in a blender. Transfer the mixture to a heavy saucepan and simmer uncovered for about 20 minutes to reduce the amount of liquid and concentrate the flavors. Add the rum flavor and butter. Refrigerate the fruit butter. Keeps for five to seven days.
