B&B butter special treat for guests

Greet guests with this easy flavored butter and some simple biscuits or scones.

They’ll feel like you doted on them, but it won’t take long at all. The recipe is one of the spreads in the new “Flavored Butters” book by Lucy Vaserfirer.

The book includes sweet and savory compound butters that can be used as spreads, toppings and sauces for an array of dishes. Here is a sample recipe from the book:

Bed & Breakfast Butter

From “Flavored Butters,” by Lucy Vaserfirer (Harvard Common Press, $12.95). “This butter is served at practically every B&B at breakfast time and for good reason – it’s effortless to make and yet somehow makes simple butter and jam seem like a special treat. Fruit preserves of any kind, including jam, jelly and marmalade will work here.

“Serve with typical breakfast fare: pancakes, waffles, French toast or crepes. Or, just spread it on toast,” Vaserfirer writes.

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/4 cup fruit preserves

Blend together the butter and fruit preserves in a medium-size bowl. Form into a log and refrigerate until firm before slicing and serving.

Yield: 8 servings
