Recipe: Herb Butter

One of my favorite recipes using fresh or dried herbs is herb butter.  I've been making this recipe for years. It really enhances the flavor of everything.  From vegetables to meat, fish and poultry.  Of course my herb butter always has lavender in it.  Get together with a friend or two and make multiple batches, you might as well, you already have the herbs.   This can make a great hostess gift or put it in a Christmas gift basket.

To make the process even easier you can use our already made "Lavender Herbs de Provence". Our herbs de provence are made from the finest organic herbs including Utah's finest organic culinary lavender and are guaranteed to make herb butter or anything you put it on taste delicious!

-1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter
-chopped fresh herbs as follows
-1Tbs. parsley
-1Tbs. tarragon
-1 Tbs. chives
-1Tbs. chervil
-1 Tbs. thyme
-1 Tsp. dried ground Lavender
-2 gloves garlic mashed
-2 large shallots chopped
-1 tsp. salt
-pepper to taste

With butter room temperature, mix all of the above ingredients together.  Roll into 2 cylinders.  Wrap in clear plastic wrap and freeze. Tip:  it can be easier to roll if you refrigerate the butter to harden up a little.  I also put it in a freezer bag once rolled and wrapped.  When using, i just take the butter out of the freezer a few  minutes before hand, and cut off the amount I want to use.  Returning the rest to the freezer.
