Compound Butter 1

Supa Tip:

  • Start with unsalted butter so you are able to control the amount of salt when you add the seasonings.
  • You can use an electric mixer for a fluffier butter. But as a busy mum, I choose to use a bowl and fork – the fewer dishes the better!

How to?

  1. Once the butter is soft, blend in the sweet or savory ingredients.
  2. Place on a sheet of baking paper or cling wrap and roll into a log.
  3. Tie each end of the baking paper or cling wrap and refrigerate until hard.
  4. Enjoy as needed!

If you don’t or can’t eat dairy, coconut oil makes a great substitute. It does lend a coconut taste to the “butter”, but that works wonders when put with complementary ingredients, such as curry powder, lime juice and cilantro.
