Herb Butter, Making

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Instead of covering corn in foil, wrap it in its own soaked husk for roasting on the barbecue. To serve, remove the husks and smear the corn with a peppery cheese spread.

Mashing Butter
Put the desired amount of softened butter or margarine into a bowl and add any finely chopped herb or combination of herbs. Use about 1 teaspoon of chopped herbs for every 2 oz (60 g) of butter or margarine. With the back of a spoon, mash together herbs and softened butter or margarine.

Rolling Log
Scoop up the herb-butter mixture and place on a square of plastic wrap (film). Fold the plastic in half over the mixture; use it to shape the mixture into a log.
