Salty, sweet and oh-so buttery, this cranberry butter is the perfect spread for warm rolls, mashed potatoes, waffles, pancakes and more!


  • 1 ½ cup fresh cranberries 
  • ¼ cup honey 
  • Minced zest of 1 orange 
  • 1 ½ cup unsalted butter (3 sticks), room temperature 
  • Kosher salt to taste


Combine cranberries, honey and zest in a saucepan over medium heat. 

Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until cranberries have burst and mixture is jam-like, about 8 minutes; cool completely. 

In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip butter on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Add cooled cranberry mixture and season with salt to taste, whip just until combined; store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
