Compound Butters: A Way to Save Herbs


With the use of my Areo Garden I have an overabundance of herbs that I honestly cannot use fast enough. There are a variety of ways to save herbs for later use: drying, freezing them in water or oil and making compound butters. Compound butters are a great way to save your herbs and an easy way to add flavors to dishes.

Possible Combinations and Pairings:

  • Garlic and Rosemary – red meats
  • Dill and Chive – fish
  • Lemon Zest and Parsley – chicken
  • Parsley and Garlic – corn on the cob
  • Cilantro and Lime Zest – Tex-Mex
  • Chive Only – Potatoes

I have also heard of using roasted peppers in compound butters. The combinations are really only limited by imagination. Have you made compound butter? If so, what is your favorite?
