This cranberry butter recipe is courtesy of my mom. She makes this at Thanksgiving and Christmas and everybody fawns over it.
How easy is this:
1 heaping cup of fresh cranberries
1 stick of cold butter
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
juice from half a lemon
Put everything in a food processor and blend until completely combined.
Makes enough to fill approximately 2 8 oz. jelly jars
Side note: Have you seen this little kitchen accessory?
it’s like a little hair net for the lemon. It catches all the seeds and pulp and you don’t have to dirty up a citrus squeezer. Ingenious. I think you can find it at Bed Bath and Beyond.
