Better than Butter

One way to take any meal to the next level is by using fresh herbs. Most recipes don’t use up your whole supply, but don’t let the rest go to waste!

One easy way to extend the life of those delicate aromatic ingredients is by whipping up some garlic butter. It can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 weeks or for 6 months in the freezer. While you could use an electric mixer, hand-mixing will do just fine.

Simply mix softened butter, garlic, and your herbs of choice. A common combination would be rosemary, thyme, and parsley but feel free to use what herbs you have available, then salt and pepper to taste. Leave the butter out to soften and use as a spread.
