Blue Ribbon Recipe

This cranberry compound butter is going to be the perfect addition to your holiday table. It's such a treat. Using whole cranberry sauce adds just the right contrast of sweet versus tart. Orange peel complements the cranberry perfectly and makes the butter pop with flavor. Shaping the butter into molds makes for a nice presentation on the holiday table. It would be wonderful on dinner rolls, biscuits, waffles, toast, or even pancakes.
