rosemary butter

new groceries!

After coming into the possession of some fresh rosemary, I whipped up some rosemary butter. I love it when groceries get left at my work because it usually results in delicious things at home. I completely forgot to add the lemon zest though. *facepalm*

I like to freeze my fancy butters in the cups of (clean) plastic egg cartons. It makes easy portions to pop out for meals or to wrap up as gifts!


I made the butter by taste this time (yes, I repeatedly tasted straight butter throughout the process) but here’s an approximate recipe:

3 sticks butter

2 small cloves garlic through a press

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped rosemary needles

lemon zest

salt and pepper to taste

For some reason I thought my little food processor would chop up the rosemary needles into a fine chop. That was not the case. In the end I put the butter in there with it and it think it whipped it a little bit.
