Tips & Hints:
  • Any leftover butter can be portioned and frozen and then defrosted as required.
  • Flavoured butters can be used for almost anything; try tossing any of these butters through steamed asparagus or green beans in a pan. Try cooking an omelette in shallot or lime and chilli butter, or simply spread over grilled steak or chicken.
  • To serve these butters at the Christmas table, use baking paper to shape them into a log and refrigerate until firm, then slice into individual rounds for serving. Allow at least 30 minutes for them to come to room temperature before serving.
  • For a special Christmas idea, spread flavoured butter onto a baking paper lined tray and chill until firm. Using a star shaped cutter (or whatever shape you like) cut out shapes and place on a serving plate on the dinner table.
