Easy Strawberry Butter

4 ounces ripe strawberries
½ cup softened butter
pinch of salt

Wash strawberries, and let drain thoroughly on a sheet tray covered in a tea towel. *It’s important that berries are completely dry before mixing with the butter.

In a medium bowl, mash berries, butter and salt with a fork or potato masher. Place finished butter in a container of choice, and keep refrigerated until use.

*Alternatively, use a food processor to process strawberries, butter and salt. Your texture will be a bit smoother.
