  1. Cindy says

    Help please -- what is the amount of cranberries used in this recipe? Just want to start with the right ratio of berries-to-other

  2. Cindy says

    I am very interested, but wondering --- What does "1 cups bag cranberries about 3" mean? What sort of measure is that? Thanks!

    • Donna1 says

      Hi Cindy, sorry for the confusion - it is one bag of cranberries which equals about one cups. I have just updated a few things on the site and it clearly didn't go as smoothly as intended 🙂 Hope you love the butter!

  3. Becca says

    I've never tried one like that, but it looks really good!

  4. Jaclyn says

    That sounds absolutely delicious! I do love fresh cranberries, but I haven't had them in a while!

  5. ashleigh says

    I love how simple this is! Very easy ingredient, I will have to give this a try for breakfast.

  6. Meagan says

    Yum! Can't wait to try this out. Nice photos!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Thanks Meagan!

  7. Jamie @ Coffee With Us 3 says

    What a fabulous idea! I never would have thought of cranberry butter, but it's a perfect way to add the yummy taste of cranberries to so many other foods!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Definitely Jamie, I have been adding it to everything - I am sure at this rate I will be sick of cranberries by thanksgiving though 🙂

  8. Yona Williams says

    I am too curious as to how this tastes. The bold color of it is incredibly appetizing and eye-catching.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      The color is amazing hey! It's super yummy 🙂

  9. [email protected] says

    That would be yummy on a biscuit. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Yum, it would be Beth - I haven't had biscuits in ages, need to rectify that 🙂

  10. Kirsten says

    This sounds fantastic! I love cranberry relish and this looks a lot like that. Where do you get vanilla bean paste? I've never seen or heard of it.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      I ordered it from Amazon, as that was the cheapest place I could find it. You can usually find it in the spice or baking aisle of most supermarkets as well

  11. Bonnie @ Living a Fit and Full Life says

    This looks yummy! I would love to have it on waffles!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      My favourite way to have it too 🙂

  12. JanetGoingCrazy says

    Oh I bet this is just amazing. I love anything with cranberries in it!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Me too Janet 🙂

  13. Blythe A. says

    I added this to my Yum cookbook. I happen to have some cranberries in my refrigerator that I bought for a recipe my mom wanted to make, except she doesn't remember which recipe. Now i know exactly what to do with them.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Haha I do that all the time Blythe, and then have to come up with something else 🙂 I hope you enjoy!

  14. Lauren Watson {Native Texan Livin'} says

    Sounds really good! This would even be a great addition to a gift basket for Christmas! Thanks! 🙂

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Good idea Lauren, I should really start giving people nice home-made things for christmas, instead of more 'stuff'!

  15. Katherine G says

    I have never had cranberry and vanilla butter before. It looks so delicious! I so want to try this. Now I'm either going to have to make it or find some.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      You might be able to find a version at a local farmers market? It's so so easy to make though, and you get two jars worth 🙂

  16. Melissa says

    I have never tried any butters like this. I love anything with vanilla 🙂

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      They are my new favourite thing! Traditional jams weren't working properly for me without the sugar (plus they take so long, I don't have the patience for that), so these butters are my easy alternative.

  17. Kiersten Millican says

    Oh my, I never would have thought of making this. It looks so cool and it's super original!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Thanks Kiersten 🙂

  18. yanique says

    I love cranberries and this cranberry vanilla bean butter looks delicious.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Thanks Yanique!

  19. Debra says

    THis sounds amazing! Perfect for waffles!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      My favourite way to eat it Debra!

  20. Cindy (Vegetarian Mamma) says

    Oh this looks amazing, I would love to make this!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      I hope you enjoy if you give it a go Cindy!

  21. Cynthia @craftoflaughter says

    This looks incredible! I think it would be perfect on a winter morning!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Definitely Cynthia! Although it has still been delicious on our (still hot) Fall mornings 🙂

  22. Dia says

    How have I not heard about this?!?! I love cranberries! I seriously have a bag in my fridge now. This sounds so yummy. Thanks for sharing

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Haha thanks Dia! Enjoy your cranberries 🙂

  23. Logan Can says

    This looks so delicious! I bet it is amazing on pancakes and biscuits!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      You are the second person to mention biscuits, and now I am totally craving them 🙂 I guess I will be doing some baking after all the halloween festivities are done!

  24. Sarah @ Sarah's Bake Studio says

    I love the cranberry-vanilla bean combo. It sounds delicious! The color is beautiful! 🙂

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Thanks Sarah! The color turned out really gorgeous hey!

  25. Kathrina says

    This butter looks fabulous. Cranberries are the thing I look forward to the most this time of year! I definitely think vanilla beans are always worth the splurge.

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Definitely Kathrina - I only recently made the splurge (and it was because I was making a wedding cake), and now there is no way I can go back - they make a huge difference!!

  26. Megan Marlowe says

    This looks heavenly! Cranberries are so wonderful this time of year. I can see this on my table all season long!

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Oh thanks Megan 🙂 We have had it on the table every morning since I started making it!

  27. Claire says

    This looks so yummy! I am definitely going to try this recipe 🙂

    • Whole Food Bellies says

      Thanks Claire, I hope you enjoy it!

    I LOVE cranberry butter! Great addition of vanilla, YUM!
