Cranberry and All Berry Lovers

Hosted by Carol Junkins
Group active since Sun, Jul 24, 2011

I have always loved all berry recipes, but cranberries are my favorite. The "Kitchen Crew" has named me the Cranberry Queen now !!! haha The first Ocean Spray building started in my home town of Hanson, MA.
This group is for all berry recipes as we can interchange them in any recipe.
Berries are so healthy for you as well. Believe it or not I can pick blueberries right in my home town as well.
Berries are a great anti-oxidant as we are all learning. So lets get baking some of the many recipes here to choose from and can make during the Holidays. I grew up in New England. Please add any recipes for main meals, desserts, drinks, sauces, puddings, appetizers.

2 cups organic heavy cream
sea salt, to taste

Pour cream into food processor and process for about 10 minutes. It will turn to a thick whipped cream first.
Continue processing until it turns grainy and separate into butter and butter milk. Drain buttermilk from butter.
Scrape butter from the sides. Put in a clean bowl. Place your butter into a colander and strain off the buttermilk.
Rinse the butter with cold water, gently turning the butter with a spoon while the cold water runs over it until the water runs clear.
When the butter is clean, squeeze more liquid from butter using wooden paddles or spoons to smash butter and pour off liquid.
You can keep it in a jar or bowl, and store it in the fridge, or the freezer. This type of butter can last for several months before going bad.
You can also make amazing compound butters which kids love. According to these are some fun combos to try with softened, unsalted butter:

Lemon zest and snipped parsley
Snipped fresh Thai basil, chopped garlic, and chopped, drained, pickled ginger
Crumbled feta cheese and chopped kalamata olives
Grated Parmesan cheese and snipped fresh basil
Grated ginger and sesame oil
Snipped fresh cilantro, lime zest, and Sriracha, or hot sauce
Coarsely ground black pepper and sea salt
Orange zest, chopped fresh, or dried cranberries and snipped fresh sage
Chopped pecans and honey
Orange zest, maple syrup, and blueberries
