Use orange zest and fresh garden herbs to make orange butter! This citrus herb compound butter is easy to make and can be frozen for later.
Servings: 16 people
- ½ pound unsalted butter (2 sticks)
- 1 cup diced chives or green onion Or use tarragon or basil. Use fresh herbs, not dried
- 2 oranges, zested (zest only) Or 4 smaller oranges (like mandarin)
- ½ teaspoon sea salt Omit salt if using salted butter
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.
