Why haven’t I made compound butter before? here’s what to do with those leftover fresh herbs you buy at The supermarket.

I see you compound butter.

It’s sooooo easy and sooooo satisfying. You gotta try it.

Leave a stick of butter (or more if you want to make a bunch) on the counter for at least a half hour to soften.

Put it in a bowl in the microwave for 12 seconds to soften further.

Cut into chunks in the bowl.

Mix in whatever herbs and seasonings you think would go well together.

I used finely chopped rosemary and thyme, crushed up and minced garlic, red pepper flakes, coarse black pepper and salt. (Use whatever appeals to you)

Then place it back on the butter wrapper and fold up and place back in the fridge for when you are ready to use it. Some people I see on youtube videos roll it up into tubes on parchment paper. It looks a little fancier but I didn’t have any.

It’s so simple I suggest you give it a whirl. I’m looking forward to experimenting with different ingredients and using it on some home cooked bread.
