HERB BUTTER’S

“Excellent For The Holidays”

I had tried mixing herbs in butter while basting a chicken, a turkey, a 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 of herbs 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.

 

Peppered Herb Cheese Ball

  • 3 Tablespoons of Snipped Fresh Chives
  • 3  Tablespoons of Snipped Fresh Basil
  • 2 Tablespoons Snipped Fresh Parsley
  • 1-8 Ounce Package Cream Cheese, Softened
  • 4-Ounces Goat Cheese
  • 1/4-1/2 Teaspoon of Cracked Black Pepper
  • 1 Clove Garlic Minced

Mix 1 tablespoon of Parsley, Chives, and Basil and set aside.  In medium bowl,  beat cheeses with 2 tablespoon of Chives, 2 tablespoons of Basil, The Pepper and The Garlic.

After mixed, Roll Cheese into a Ball and Roll Ball of Cheese into the Mixture of 1 tablespoon of Parsley, 1 tablespoon of Chives, and 1 tablespoon of Basil.  Wrap Cheese Ball  and Chill for 4-24 Hours.  Makes 12 (2-Tablespoon) Servings.  Great with Crackers, Meat, Vegetables…Your Preference!
