3 Farm Inspired Compound Butters

Be Creative, Have Fun, Woo Your Guests, and Elevate Your Dishes!

Let’s start with the REAL inspiration….our SWEET Manassero Farms Strawberries! During berry season, customers flock from far away cities, states, and even counties to sink their teeth into Manassero berries.  We’ve been asked if they are infused, genetically engineered, etc.  Nope they are just naturally delicious! And like many others, I too look for all different ways to use these rare beauties.

A thought came to me while indulging in our Manassero Farms Strawberry Jam (another inspiration)…..Voila! Strawberry Butter

Now that we serve this at our popular monthly  “Breakfast In The Barn” I have to believe that some are “coming for the butter”!

Strawberry Butter

Perfect for toast, scones and warm biscuits

  • Diced fresh strawberries
  • Unsalted butter at room temperature
  • Powdered sugar to taste
  • Maldon’s flaked sea salt to taste
  • Optional to create herb version – fresh minced rosemary to taste

Mix all ingredients by hand till thoroughly combined, place in mason jars and refrigerate before serving.

We are always looking for ways to woo our guests at our most popular Private Event BBQ’s where Manassero Farms get the honor of hosting such events such as retirement, engagement, wedding, bridal, baby, and birthday celebrations.  One our biggest crowd pleasures is our Grilled Steak with farm fresh Chimichurri Sauce.  Why not elevate the boring old rosemary butter to a Chimichurri Butter!



Chimichurri Butter

Pair this flavorful butter with shrimp, scallops, beef, sauteed veggies, the list doesn’t end!

  • 3 tablespoons oregano, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 bunch parsley
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • ⅛ cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 sheet wax paper, 16 inches long

Blend oregano, chili flakes, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, vinegar and honey in a blender. While blending, drizzle in olive oil until fully incorporated. In a large bowl, fold together chimichurri sauce and softened butter until fully incorporated. 

When you think of smooth, rich, luscious….you cannot help but be inspired by Manassero Farms raw, organic honey! Combine fresh citrus for a summer time butter perfect for toast, corn bread, scones, or even sweet potatoes. 

Citrus Honey Butter

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Purée all ingredients in a food processor until smooth.

To Freeze any of these butters for later use:

Lay out wax paper, place compound butter in the middle of the wax paper, then shape into a log, roll the paper over the log and twist the ends to secure. Place the log in the freezer until firm. Once solid, you can pre-cut into rounds or keep whole. This will keep in the fridge for about a month.
