Compound Butters... 3 Delicious Sweet and Savory Flavors

November 13, 2014

 

One way to feel super fancy is with compound butters. They also make great gifts for the holidays. You can put them in a small mason jar, or roll them out into logs. They can be sweet or savory and the combinations are endless. You don't have to be limited to, but are hopefully inspired by, the ones that I present you here. And they freeze so well if you don't need massive quantities of butter for one meal. What you're looking at is...

A Pumpkin, Honey, Cinnamon Compound Butter (great for rolls and breads)

Rosemary Gorgonzola Compound Butter (steak, Portobello steaks, vegetables, chicken, etc...)

Lemon, Dill, Parsley Butter (fish, lobster, shrimp, vegetables, chicken)

 

For the Lemon Herb Butter:

1/2 cup butter

1 lemon

1 tbsp parsley

1 tbsp dill

4 garlic cloves

1/2 tsp salt

Make sure the butter is at room temperature, and cut into small cubes. Place these cubes into a mixing bowl. Zest and juice your lemon and add it to the bowl. Add minced garlic, parsley, dill and salt. Mix thoroughly by mixing with a fork. Return to the fridge until it solidifies. *See below for storage notes.

 

For the Rosemary Gorgonzola Butter:

1/2 cup butter

6 tbsp gorgonzola

1 tbsp rosemary

1/2 tsp salt

6 garlic cloves

Make sure the butter is at room temperature, and cut it into small cubes. Place them into a mixing bowl and add the gorgonzola, the minced rosemary leaves, the minced garlic and the salt. 

Mix thoroughly by mixing with a fork. Return to the fridge until it solidifies. *See below for storage notes.

 

For the Honey Pumpkin Cinnamon Butter:

1/2 cup butter

4 tbsp pumpkin puree

2 tbsp honey

2 taps/shakes of nutmeg

4 taps/shakes of cinnamon

Make sure the butter is at room temperature, and cut it into small cubes. Add the pumpkin puree, honey, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix thoroughly by mixing with a fork. Return to the fridge until it solidifies. *See below for storage notes

 

 

*I scooped mine into wax paper and rolled it into logs. It was the first time I have done this, it was a little complex. I wrapped the butter in the wax paper and loops it around. I twisted the ends in, like a candy wrapper as I was rolling it out. You can also put it into a mason jar or a plastic bag.
