This summer, use fresh garden basil and blossoms to make basil butter! This garlic herb compound butter is easy to make and can be frozen for later.
Servings: 16 servings
- ½ lb unsalted butter, divided (2 sticks)
- 1 cup basil, thinly sliced Or tear basil into small pieces
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp sea salt
Avoid wrapping the butter in wax paper, which (in my experience) tends to stick to the butter (especially when softening the whole log).
Nutrition information assumes 1 tablespoon of butter per serving.
