Easy Herb Butters

Since herbs are plentiful this time of year, why not use them to make a
variety of simple herb butters? You can even freeze the butters to delight in
in the cooler fall months ahead.

Use these tasty butters on everything from grilled steaks, fish, and
chicken, to cooked vegetables. And don’t forget to slather some on a huge
chunk of fresh bread.

To make herb butters, chop the herbs very fine (and pulverize the
seeds). Cream the butter. Then blend in the herbs and seasonings. Roll
the herb butter into a log, then wrap the log in waxed paper. Store in the
refrigerator, or place in the freezer (for up to 6 months).

Try the following herb butter combinations:


2 sticks softened butter

1 Tsp. chopped, fresh green basil

1 Tbsp. chopped, fresh marjoram

1 Tbsp. chopped, fresh chives

1 tspo. chopped, fresh rosemary

1 tsp. fresh lemon juice


1/2 c. softened butter

1 clove garlic, crushed

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp. lemon juice

1/4 tsp. chopped basil

1/4 tsp. oregano

Pepper to taste


2 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary leaves

1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

1 tsp. lemon juice

2 sticks softened butter

Variation: To make pretty pats of these butters, spoon softened herb
butter into candy molds and freeze. When the butter is frozen, pop it out
of the molds. Store the butter pats in the refrigerator.
