Author Notes: Garlic Butter is one of our year-round staples. Sometimes I buy it from Ronnybrook at the farmers market, and sometimes I make it. When I make it home I like to use fresh herbs to give the flavor a new twist. We use this with everything from garlic bread and scrambled eggs, to pasta and mashed potatoes. This recipe would work well with other herbs if you don’t like rosemary or it isn’t available. —Kelsey Banfield
Makes: 16 t. butter
tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
medium size garlic cloves
teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
pinch Kosher salt
- Press the garlic cloves through a garlic press into a glass bowl. Then, add the butter and chopped rosemary. Mix them thoroughly. Add a pinch of Kosher salt and taste the mixture. If it needs more salt, add it pinch by pinch until it reaches the desired taste. Store, covered, in the refrigerator.
- Note: If you want an even more intense garlic taste just add 1-2 more cloves. Same with the herbs.
