Any breaksfast bread pairs beautifully with this lucsious strawberry spread. I serve this with biscuits, croissants, and scones. It goes with popovers and basically any bread that you choose.

Strawberry butter looks fabulous molded into the shape of a ball or cut into shapes (while chilled) with a cookie cutter. You can also serve guests small individual scoops of strawberry in miniature ramekins or small plates. Strawberry butter is best chilled just until serving.
What is the best brand of preserves?
The preface to the recipe states that Neiman Marcus uses “only the best strawberry preserves available.” There are many high quality preserves in grocery and food specialty stores. Smuckers was the Cooks Illustrated taste tests top pick. My favorite breand is Bonne Maman, also recommended by Cook’s Illustrated, along with Stonewall Kitchen.

Cook’s Illustrated taste tests rated Challenge their top pick for unsalted butter. They also gave high marks to Kerrygold and Land O’Lakes. I tried Challenge butter once when it was BOGO at Publix and thought that it was excellent.
