Kitchen Gardener: Herb Butter
You’ll be needing…
Pack of butter (usually 225g)
Herbs from the garden
This is one of our favourite ways to use up herbs grown in the garden. We planted a small border using a couple of bags of multi-purpose topsoil, and a few weeks later we had a bounty of fresh herbs to play with.
We also threw in some garlic, and by replacing the herbs in this recipe with a couple of crushed cloves we ended up with beautiful garlic butter with which to make delish mushrooms or yum garlic bread!Our favourite butters to date are minted butter to serve on hot new potatoes, rosemary butter melted on top of lamb and sage and chive smeared on top of chicken before it’s roasted in the oven! We’ve also tried our hand at home-made chilli butter using a finely diced chilli in place of the herbs – hot, hot, hot!
