Blueberry Butter


       There are very few things in life that I love more than butter. It just make me happy.
       I love full fat with salt butter. I could slather it on everything. I wish I could indulge
       more often but my thighs would not not like me. Everything in moderation, right?
       You need to make this...like today!! This is perfect for a hostess gift. I like to smear
       some on croissants any carb will do. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
       

              1 pint blueberries
              1 stick salted butter
              4 to 5 tablespoons of powdered sugar
              lemon zest ( optional )

          In a small bowl mash blueberries and set aside. In a another bowl mix butter and
          sugar until well combined. Mix the blueberries and butter together and place in
          a canning jar or bowl. Refrigerate or sever room temp and thoroughly enjoy!
                  I came up with recipe because I needed to use up the berries I had!
