This should be good easily for at least one week. Sugar is a preservative and butter will stay good. I wouldn't use it with margarine. The mouth feel wouldn't be as nice. Anyway, I don't get why you'd mix when separately they'd taste just as great -- butter something and put jam on it. I can see it more with a cream cheese where the mixing would mellow flavors together. They are fresher longer separate....

I've made strawberry butter using fresh strawberries and powdered sugar~~~delicious! You can also use frozen berries and some type of sugar to sweeten it to suit your personal taste.

I was thinking of trying this with fresh fruit, sugar substitute, and margarine. Has anyone else tried this?

I would think it would last a good week because there is nothing raw in the butter. Most or all would be used on the scones at one sitting anyway. Just make it and enjoy it!!

This sounds so yummy,Id love to try it with a variety of different summer and fall fruit jams.I doubt there would be left overs but would also like to know how long these would keep in the fridge.
