You'll want to make extra so that you'll have a stash tucked away in your freezer.
Ingredients
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, very room temperature and soft
  • 2 Tablespoons of finely chopped herbs, like thyme, basil, oregano, chives, parsley, remove all stems
  • 1garlic clove, chopped finely
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • a small pinch of red pepper or a small portion of a chopped red chili ( optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Place the softened butter into a bowl and with a spatula fold in all the other ingredients then add the salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Place the whole bowl into the fridge so the butter mixture can harden up a bit so you can easily form it into a log.
  3. Take a piece of plastic wrap and lay it on the counter and spoon it on top then roll it into a log and twist the ends.
  4. Stick the log into the fridge and let it completely harden up before slicing and using it.
  5. Stays well in the fridge for a week and in the freezer for up to 3 months.
