homemade cranberry butter

I bought a bag of cranberries at Trader Joe's 
a few weeks ago, well-- because
they are red, festive, and tis' the season for cranberries!

However, every time I go into my refrigerator
there they are in the front of the fridge
taking up prime real estate on the top shelf
begging to be used in a holiday recipe...
Cranberry Butter:


Ingredients:

1. (1) Stick Butter

2. (2) Tbsp Maple Syrup or Agave (I used a honey vanilla agave)

3. Bag of Fresh Cranberries

Directions:

1) Wash 1/2 bag of cranberries and pat dry.

2) Throw cranberries in a pan with 2 tbsp either maple syrup or agave and heat on medium, stirring frequently, until cranberries soften and turn to a jam-like consistently (some of them will burst)
 

3. Throw into a mixing bowl and let cool, about 10-15 min. 
4. Fold in one stick of softened butter (I used salted) and use an electric mixer to whip into butter.
 

5. Serve on English muffin or as a festive holiday butter to add to muffins, bagels, etc.
Tip: Sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top for an extra special treat! :)
