Always use fresh lemon balm leaves over dried lemon balm because there is nothing better. The strong aromas come through in any recipe.
You can use regular butter or vegan butter for this recipe. They both taste equally great with fresh lemon balm.
Use fresh mint, fresh oregano and fresh basil for this butter. The combination of fresh herbs will make this a very unique butter recipe.
Add other fresh herbs that you have access to. This lemon balm butter is made better because of the fusion of different herbs.
If you don’t like seeing bits of herbs in your butter, you can always grind them to a pulp in a food processor and then pour in the melted butter.
This butter is a great way to preserve your fresh herbs. They won’t go to waste and they make your recipes taste delicious.
