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.
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.
- 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.
You can use this butter as a spread on crackers, crustini, or scones. Try them as a part of your next party spread. Your guests will love them!
- Butter - salted or unsalted, the choice is yours
- Seasonings and/or spices
- Fresh Vegetables, minced
- 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.
