In a large bowl, beat 3 sticks of room-temperature unsalted butter until fluffy. Min in 5 tablespoons strawberry jam ( blueberry or raspberry also work well). Divide mixture in half and spoon onto two 12"W x 18"L pieces of parchment paper; centering butter near a short side of the paper. use your hands to shape mixture into a log approximately two inches thick. Wrap the nearest end of the paper over the top of logs, then continue rolling until all the paper covers log. Twist ends and tape to seal.
To make it gift-worthy: Wrap each paper-covered log in a pretty white fabric, then tie the ends with twine and add a tag.
