Rhubarb Butter without Canning
This recipe calls for only adding as much salt and sugar as your taste requires. The batch in the picture took 2 very small pinches of salt and 6 tablespoons (3/8 cup) of sugar.
Fruit butters may have spices in them like cinnamon or may simply rely on the flavor of the fruits for their kick.
Although this same recipe may be adapted for canning, making a small quantity to store in the fridge or freezer works just as well.
