I’m having regrets.
I should’ve just made a bigger batch of this and saved it for the rest of the grilling season! This butter tastes great with grilled veggies, along with a few other foods that I listed below. There aren’t many ingredients in this butter, so you probably already have them lying around the kitchen (just make sure to get some fresh herbs to really bring out the taste of all the other ingredients). This was gone in a few days, so unlike me make a bigger batch and store it in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container. With July 4th right around the corner, it’ll probably come in handy!
1 stick butter (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 tsp honey
1/2 tsp agave
1 sprig thyme
3 sprigs rosemary
2 pinches of sea salt
Black pepper (to taste)
Leave butter in a bowl to soften at room temperature, about an hour. (Don’t throw out the wrapper, you’ll need it later!)
Wash herbs and let them dry on a paper towel. Chop them finely.
Using a fork, mix the butter in a bowl and leave a well in the middle. Add agave, honey, and sea salt in the well and mix with the fork. Add the chopped herbs and black pepper and stir. Place the mixture evenly back into the center of the wrapper, roll into a log, and twist the ends tightly (like a candy wrapper) to seal. Place in the fridge to set.
This would taste good with:
1. Sourdough bread with sricha or chipotle mayo (which means a three flavor combo: spicy, salty and sweet!)
2. Fresh grilled veggies
3. Roasted corn salsa with lime juice and jalapeno
4. Melting onions (creds to the bro for figuring this one out!)
