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!
