Compound Your Pleasure

How to Make Compound Butter

Use compound butter on warm bread, corn on the cob, or as a finishing garnish on a steak

Compound butters are a super-easy way to be super-impressive. Simply add any herb, spice or other ingredient you like the flavour of, to softened butter, then blend and chill.
