Strawberry Rhubarb Butter

This yummy dairy spread pairs perfectly with challah on holidays or Shabbat.

  • Duration
  • Cook Time
  • Prep Time


  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 large or 2 medium stalks fresh rhubarb, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 pound butter, at room temperature
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


1. Place strawberries, rhubarb, sugar, water, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring just to a boil and then reduce heat to low-medium and simmer until completely soft and liquid has reduced, around 15 minutes.

2. Allow to cool completely. Put mixture in a food processor fitted with blade attachment and pulse until smooth.

3. Add strawberry-rhubarb mixture, salt, and softened butter. Combine until distributed. It’s okay if there are chunks of fruit here and there.
