Creamy butter, fresh herbs from the garden, and crusty french bread from the oven… I think I’ve died and gone to heaven!
I can almost taste summer it’s so close! I’ve got all my herbs and veggies growing inside, just waiting to be planted in the warmth of the sun. Until then I’ve got rows of herbs on my windowsill waiting to experiment with in my dishes. One of my favourites is a simple herbed butter slathered over a fresh baguette. It’s perfect on its own or topped on a favourite meal like grilled steak!
I love fresh herbs and try my hardest to keep them going all year. I normally only succeed with a few like my rosemary tree and a huge pot of overflowing mint. But my current obsession is lemon thyme. I’m adding it to everything right now (even to my glass of water)! And it is absolutely, hands down the best flavour sneaking out of this herbed butter I made.
I also love butter, and making herbed butter means you can only use the best ingredients like my favourite; Stirling Whey Butter! It’s smooth and silky, perfect for whipping in your favourite herbs and has a slight nutty taste. If you’re a butter fan this is the butter for you, I promise you’ll never have another butter again!!
There is no right way to make herbed butter. I’ll give you this simple recipe that I made, but the best part of making herbed butter is you can use as many different herbs and as much or as little as you like. I basically used what I had around the house, and I really wanted to use my lemon thyme. It did not disappoint!
