Herb Butter

Herb butters are a great fav of mine. It is such a wonderful way to showcase an herb. I know there are lots of combinations of herb butter but I prefer the very simple one herb/ per butter. My favorite, of course, is Basil butter. I love using the spicy globe basil, because of the tiny leaves( no chopping) and of course,mixing it with real butter. I use the food processor to mix the two and let it chill for a couple hours. Gosh, have you ever tasted fresh vegetables with this butter over them ? It is to die for. I love to take a baguette and slice it and in between the slices add the basil butter as well as a few small basil leaves. Wrap it up in foil and then heat it. Man o Man...I cannot do justice to the taste. What about fresh corn on the cob,
Try It!! You'll like it!
Of course, I will have more on various types of herb butter in later posts.

  2. I found your blog through my sweet savannah and it is fabulous! I love all of your posts about gardening and food, however, I am sorry that you have someone ended up with our summer and we - yours... I hate to say it but I am thrilled that it has finally decided to stay OUT of the 90s around here!
