Nothing says summer like a handful of fresh blackberries. As the season comes to a close, we find ourselves savoring every little bit of summer flavor we have left. Blackberry butter is so easy to make. Mix up a combination of fresh blackberries and blackberry preserves for a delicious spread. I love eating blackberry butter on fresh buttermilk waffles and crunchy baguette.
1/2 c. butter
1 tbsp. blackberry preserves
1 tbsp. fresh blackberries, mashed
For the compound butter: Place butter in a medium mixing bowl. Mash blackberries with a fork. Mix fresh blackberries and blackberry preserves into the butter.
Pack the butter into a ramekin or shape into a log using plastic wrap. Let the butter chill in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes prior to serving.

Last week, we had the privilege of hanging out and cooking with the amazing Silvia Baldini. There’s not much Silvia doesn’t do – a former high-powered art director in NYC, she’s now a local chef, entrepreneur, super mom and all-around #girlboss. Did I mention she won Chopped with “the best dessert on this show ever”? Needless to say, we were thrilled she agreed to be featured in the second installment of our Chef Series!
