A few months ago, Hubby and I were gifted with a few bags of homegrown, local, English Walnuts. We cracked them all, and froze them. I decided to make a butter spread with them.
Although I still have a bit of congestion and cough, I got up early and made the family French Toast for breakfast. The butter is now "kid" tested, and approved. I'm looking for more ways to sneak the nutrition of walnuts into our diet.
A few years ago, I gifted my family Cinnamon Honey Butter, and it won over well. This butter is another healthy, homemade gift idea. Here is the recipe:
1/2 cup organic butter
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
optional: 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
(I put cinnamon in my eggs, so I don't add it to my butter)
Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl until well blended. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Yield: Makes 1 1/4 cups.
