Rhubarb Orange Butter


Orange Rhubarb Butter





















Fruit butters are a beautiful thing.  You get a powerful punch of intense flavour, perfect for spreading on toast or layering with whipped cream or mascarpone, or spreading over almond or peanut butter, or serving hot over ice cream…. with the advantage of a fraction of the sugar. This year I am switching over to butters.  Jam is fine, but, the sugar I really don’t need. Its flavour I want! 

Rhubarb butter is a power-pack of flavour.  Its sweet enough to eat on its own (um… in giant scoopfuls…) but of course I would neeever do that. *bats eyelashes*

You have a wonderful spicy kick from the ginger, and it is balanced by the citrus of the orange.  The honey (vegans: use maple syrup, agave or other liquid sweetener)  evens out the acidity of the rhubarb, so you end up with a nicely balanced spread….
