Crock-Pot Sweet Tomato Butter

Crock-Pot Sweet Tomato ButterWhen doings fruit and vegetable butters, I prefer to use a crock-pot with a warm feature.  It does take a little longer, but the butter does not burn.   I had to break out my 3 pot buffet crock-pot as it has the warm feature.  The older crock-pots have a low that is comparable to the warm on the newer models.   I was surprised by the end taste of this butter!  I had small garlic bread pieces and spread the warm butter on them and they were out of this world!   My husband’s grandpa tried it and said he would prefer it nice and cold.

    This sounds pretty delicious, is it more savory or sweet? Would you recommend adding any herbs or seasonings? If so, what? Also, what other veggies could you do this with? Thanks, as you can see I’m highly interested!

      I chose to make mine more savory. But you could easily add a little more sugar to give it a sweeter taste. I liked it just the way it was. My grandpa like it but said he would prefer it refrigerated and not warm. I could see it either way. Serve on hard toasted bread or a biscuit I think would be best. I wouldnt add any herbs…you dont want it too much like spaghetti sauce. As far as other veggies, I am not sure..but I might have to try something. hmmm carrots?
