Flavoured Butters

Flavored butters are to die for when you trying to impress your dinner guests. Did you ever get served chive butter with your soft dinner roll? Of course, elegant restaurants enjoy impressing their guests with various herb flavored butters. Dill flavored butter is a delicious complement to a fresh salmon entrée. As your butter melts, the fine flavor of dill slides gently over your salmon. Scooped into a ball, fresh herbed butter adds to your plate.

If you are like me, you will love to enjoy flavored butters throughout the year, even in the depth of a freezing winter snowstorm! To ensure you have enough flavored butters to last the winter months, start your freezer supply as soon as you begin to harvest. Here I mean that you start making your fresh chive butter, make a roll of flavored butter then store it in plastic wrap, and pop it into the freezer to be used a few months later.

It is very common to take fresh herbs and make flavored butters. However, it just as easy to use powdered spices. Have you ever tried a chili butter? How about sumac butter? Each flavoring can be related to the ethnic food that you are serving your butter with.
