Have you ever mixed up some real butter with fresh herbs or seasoning to use on steamed veggies? How about some sweet additions to butter for spreading on your morning toast or muffin?
Here are a few combinations that I like. I hope they inspire you to try making your own compound butters!
1 tsp curry powder
The method for making each butter combination is the same. Use butter that is at room temperature and simply mix the desired ingredients together until smooth. If you are making a larger batch, try whipping the butter with your mixer. It will be light, airy and expand in volume quite a bit! Once finished, chill butter in the refrigerator for a few hours to let the flavours meld. Overnight is even better!
Some of my other favourite ingredients to mix into butters are (individually); Strawberries, apple, blue cheese, garlic, lemon, chipotle seasoning, brown sugar, creamed honey…. oh how I love honey butter!
The combinations are endless… have fun with it!
