Combine strawberry puree with remaining ingredients in a deep pot set over medium heat. Bring mixture to a boil stirring frequently to prevent scorching, lower heat and simmer until mixture is very thick, about 60-90 minutes, stirring frequently. Any foam produced by strawberries will disappear with the cooking process. Strawberry butter is finished cooking when it holds shape on a spoon.
