Slow Cooker Blueberry Butter
This recipe for Crock-Pot Blueberry Butter is an easy and tasty recipe to make. I was given an abundance of fresh blueberries and tried my hand at blueberry butter. A definite winner in my book and my families. I made fresh hot biscuits and topped it with the blueberry butter and yummy! If you do not have fresh blueberries, you can use frozen blueberries.
This is a great recipe to add to holiday gift giving. A little basket with homemade jelly, jams and butters and add in some homemade biscuits or muffins. I have made this recipe before and had some left in a jar in the refrigerator. A year later and it was still as good as the first day it was made. Of course, that jar was stuck in the back behind some eggs where no one else could find it. It was my secret stash for those mornings I wanted a little something special on my toast and no one was looking!.
