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.
