Compound Butters such as this recipe for Lemon Parsley Butter are the simplest way to have wonderful rich flavor on hand at a moment's notice. I grow parsley in my herb garden and I have three lemon trees in my yard. This recipe suits my needs perfectly. Use this butter on steamed baby potatoes, on baked or grilled fish, on crackers as a spread, on pasta with a little fresh cream, on broiler toast, on a steak with crumbled bleu cheese.......and on and on and on. If you have never made a compound butter, it's about time you try. Bon Appetit!

Step-by-Step

  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until quite smooth. It is easier if the butter is slightly softened. Make sure the parsley is cleaned and spun dry before using. Use a pulse on/off action.
  2. Pack into several small crocks/ramekins and keep tightly covered in the fridge. Butter will keep several weeks, if not longer.
