Lemon Parsley Butter

Tess Geer


A French tradition, compound butters are made with butter combined with other ingredients. Their buttery flavor pop can take something great to something REALLY great in a flash! Tightly wrapped in plastic wrap, they freeze for up to six months and thaw quickly. Use them just as you would butter. I love this one with fish, chicken, on crusty French bread and slathered on corn on the cob.
