You can certainly use unsalted butter. However, I do find that the salted butter helps offset the sweetness of the raspberry/butter but you can use unsalted if you prefer.

Raspberries peak season for taste and freshness is from June through August.

How can I make this less sweet?
If you want to make this less sweet, you can skip using the sugar or cut down on the sugar.

How many servings does this recipe make?
This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups of raspberry butter. It can easily spread on about 18 slices of bread depending on how much you use.

Can I use regular sugar?
No. Using regular sugar will cause the butter to be too gritty.

Yes! In fact, here is a delicious Strawberry Butter Recipe.

  • Toast
  • Biscuits
  • Scones
  • Croissants
  • Donuts
  • Bagels
  • In cakes in place of traditional frostings

How to Store Leftover Raspberry Butter

Leftover raspberry butter should be stored in an airtight container (such as a mason jar) and stored in the refrigerator. It can last 1-2 weeks when stored properly.

How to Make Homemade Raspberry Butter

Start by softening your butter and allowing your raspberries to get to room temperature. If you are using frozen raspberries, make sure the raspberries are thawed before using. My raspberries were still a little frozen and it caused the butter to freeze a little as I made it making it a bit chunky. Once the butter melted a little, it was very creamy.

Place the softened butter in a medium bowl and mash with a spoon until creamy. You can also use your stand mixer to whip the butter if you’d prefer.

Add in the raspberries (or raspberry jam) into the bowl and mix together until everything is well combined.
