These butters aren't loaded with sugar, and are great slathered on warm buttermilk biscuits. They're also good with smoked sausages and other meats, also. Fruit butters are so easy to make. You can make them ahead of time and stored in the fridge for at least a week. Serve them chilled or warm them slightly in a pan or in the micro for a fresher more homemade flavor.Source: Unknown
