Cranberry-Herb Butter

I started making and using this compound butter about five years ago. The tartness of the cranberries plays well against the turkey, and sage and rosemary are always winning herbs for the Thanksgiving Turkey. Add whatever herbs you like tho, or leave them out entirely and add a bit of honey or sugar to use as a spread on your breads.
