HERB BUTTERS

“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:

  • Parsley
  • Chives
  • Lemon Balm
  • Savory
  • Marjoram
  • Garlic Chives
  • Tarragon
  • Chervil

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.
