To be completely honest, I’m not sure if I should post this recipe or not.  The idea of flavouring a butter is certainly not mine and not original.  The possibilities for flavouring butter are endless -try a Google image search – and the process is terribly easy. Once I took at look at the photos, however, I felt a post was warranted.

Flavoured Butters

Just do this: Scoop as much butter as you think you’ll need into a bowl.  Add your favourite flavourings, as long as they are very finely minced. Mix together and allow the butter to sit for a few hours before using. That way, the flavourings you’ve chosen will have had time to marry the butter.

Possible flavourings:

  • Onion and garlic
  • Feta cheese and black olives
  • Sun dried tomato and oregano
  • Cinnamon and brown sugar
  • Cranberries and sage
  • Or just about anything your pretty mind can fathom

I choose to make two types. The first was roasted red pepper butter, and the second was green onion and parsley.

Ingredients
  • Butter - salted or unsalted, the choice is yours
  • Seasonings and/or spices
  • Fresh Vegetables, minced
Instructions
  1. There's really no exact science to this recipe. I tend to use a ratio of 4:1, meaning, if I use 4 tablespoons of butter, I would use 1 tablespoon of additives. For the butters in the photographs, I used ½ cup of butter and ⅛ cup of the flavours I wanted.

    1. You’re most welcome, Raquel. There’s so many great butter flavour combinations. I’d love to hear about the flavours you come up with! 🙂

    1. Thank you! To be honest, I served them with savoury scones, but I used the leftover butter to fry an omelette. It was super tasty!
