You can use any herbs, alone or in combination. Finely mince them for a super-smooth butter and fully integrated flavor, or leave them roughly chopped for a more rustic spread and individual pops of flavor: chive here, tarragon there.
Makes 1 cup
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- Sea salt
- 1 clove garlic, finely minced
- 1/4 cup minced or chopped fresh herbs (a single herb or combination)
In a medium bowl, cream the butter with salt and fold in the garlic and herbs. Use immediately or store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
