Herb butter

Herb butter

Are the simple things in life the most enjoyable ones? It’s a hard question but flavoring our favorite butter with some herbs may help us find the answer.

As I most recently have some time, I was surfing on the internet yesterday. Trying to get fresh, stirring tips, inspiring dishes that I have never tasted before, to surprise my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t come across too many interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this yummy and easy dessert by chance on Suncakemom. The dessert looked so delightful on its photo, it called for quick action.

It was not so difficult to imagine just how it is made, its taste and just how much boyfriend might love it. Mind you, it is extremely simple to delight the guy in terms of cakes. Anyhow, I visited the webpage and simply followed the step by step instuctions that were coupled with wonderful pictures of the process. It really makes life rather easy. I could suppose it’s a bit of a effort to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you most often have sticky hands thus i sincerely appreciate the effort and time she put in for making this post and recipe easily implemented.

Having said that I’m encouraged presenting my personal recipes in the same way. Many thanks the thought.

I had been fine tuning the initial mixture to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to mention it was a great success. They enjoyed the flavour, the overall look and loved getting a delicacy such as this during a lively week. They quite simply wanted lots more, a lot more. So the next occasion I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m likely to double the amount .

You can find the original herb butter at SunCakeMom

Soften butter by leaving it out of the fridge for a couple of hours. Alternatively, we can just put it into the microwave oven for 10 – 20 sec on the highest setting. We don’t need it to be liquified but only soft enough to work with.

Chop up the other ingredients finely that we want to add to our compound butter. Alternatively, we can use dried spices or herbs but fresh always tastes better.

Add in some or all of the basic flavorings.

Throw in some extra flavors by adding pungent fresh herbs to our compound butter. Of course, we can just use one thing from all the available options but who could resist of some garlic, Parmesan, bacon or all?

Mix them well together. We can use a machine but it should be doable with a fork, given that we started off with a soft butter.

There are many options to store our flavored butter. We can simply leave it in the bowl we prepared it, roll it up into plastic wraps or use our silicone cupcake moulds and fill them all up.

Place the freshly made compound butter into the fridge or freezer until it hardens back to normal or use it straight away.
