“Excellent For The Holidays”
I had tried mixing herbs in butter while basting a chicken, then a turkey, next roast, then I went wild and started mixing herb butters and putting them on everything. I like different herb butters for different meats. I love Lemon, garlic, and Rosemary butter for Chicken. I love Thyme Butter on my Turkey. I love Garlic, Rosemary and Bourbon butter on Lamb (all the Alcohol burns off) I love the flavor in food.
Some of the best herbs in butter are:
- Lemon Balm
- Garlic Chives
I use only organic butter as hardeners are not used in the butter. Organic Butter has a softer melting point. Don’t be afraid to intermix herbs to your family’s taste.
