Herb butter!

Plain butter is amazing. When you add other flavours, it becomes divine!

Here is my herbed butter. It is a good way to extend the life of fresh herbs. This compound butter is delicious on grilled bread, pasta or burgers. Use a little on baked potatoes, meat, vegetables or on anything where regular butter would taste good.

Herb butterI have added parsley, oregano and dill. Dill is a very strong herb but it mellows when it hits warm toast.

This is a very flexible recipe. Take the desired quantity of herbs and butter. If there are more herbs the butter might turn green. Use salted butter, crushed peppers and garlic paste.  Add a dash of lime zest and few drops of lime juice to flavour. Combine everything with room temperature butter in the bowl and mix with a silicone spatula to blend. IMG_1144 MixingTry other herb combinations too!

Roll it!Shape it into a cylindrical piece and wrap it in plastic wrap or parchment paper and store. It stays good in the fridge for a few days and for a longer time in the freezer.
