Sour Cherry Vanilla Butter

Kim Biegacki Recipe

By Kim Biegacki pistachyoo


Talk about the house smelling this Cherry Vanilla Butter sure had a wonderful aroma. It is a very easy butter to make since you can process it in the crockpot. I did not measure my cherries but just filled my large crock a little over 1/2 way full. It was easy and fun to make this butter and the taste is amazing!

I found this recipe

It was a wonderful tuturial and super easy to follow.

Hope you enjoy.

cloves, ground
vanilla bean or 6 to 7 tbsp. of a good vanilla
5 lb
8 oz

Directions Step-By-Step

Start with a large bucket of pitted sour cherries.
Fill crockpot with cherries and enough water to almost cover cherries. Cook overnight for 8 hours. Leave the lid tipped to let steam out.
Cooked down cherries the next day. That are ready to be blended.
Use a hand emersion blender on the cherries. Now, add your sugar, spices and vanilla bean.
Split your vanilla bean and remove the seeds. Place the seeds and the bean down into the blended cherries.
Cook for another several hours stirring ever so often till the butter becomes a thick consistency. When ready ladle into hot jars and seal.
Now, give them a hot water bath for 15 minutes.
Place on counter and let cool overnight. Next day, check seals and tighten. Place your labels on jars and store.
June 17th, 2014 --- I must share that I used this sour cherry vanilla butter in this recipe I am posting Apple Butter Bars and it was fabulous! I will be making them again & again. I didn't have any apple butter but remembered my cherry butter so I used it instead. It was a perfect match.
