Tips for making them

  • Where possible, use fresh herbs instead of dried herbs. This will add amazing aromas and flavors to the butter that dried herbs just can’t compete with.
  • Always use grass fed butter because it contains more concentration of nutrients. Additionally, grass-fed butters are made from responsibly sourced bovine milk.
  • Where possible, beat or whip up the butter first in your stand-alone mixture. This will aerate the butter and other ingredients will be better blended in.
  • Don’t let the saturated fat in butter deter you from using butters. Refer to my complete guide to butters.
  • Once you have made the compound butters, mold it into a log shape. Roll it in a wax paper and twist the ends of the paper and optionally, put it in a Ziploc bag.
  • Compound butters can be frozen or refrigerated. Frozen they can last about a year, depending on the ingredients you put into it.

🌿 Handy Tip: Whereever possible, use fresh herbs. Not only does it add wonderful flavors, it’s also a great way to preserve them.
