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?
