Black Butter (1839) ★★★★★I picked this recipe because I was really intrigued by the name. The recipe claims that it is healthier than salt butter....but I'm not really sure how sugary fruit is any better than salty butter...? Anyway, this is a great 2-ingredient recipe for some quick jam. I bet this would even be great used as a sauce on pancakes or ice cream or as the filling for a cake.
I used cherries and I really liked this! It was sooo yummy. Little Y liked it too :)
The only thing is that I overcooked it a little too much, so it was very thick and a bit tough to spread. It didn't effect the taste at all though. Also, I added a tiny bit of water, because the cherries weren't super juicy. Other fruits like berries might not need the extra water, especially if they're from frozen.

1 pound BERRIES, CURRANTS, or CHERRIES
1/2 pound SUGAR
1. Wash and pit fruit, if needed. Mix sugar and fruit in a medium saucepan. Add a small amount of water if needed, but remember the fruit will emit some juices.
2. Boil fruit until it has reduced to 1/4 the original amount and is thick enough to spread on bread.
