Garlic Chive Compound Butter

MAKES APPROXIMATELY ½ CUP

While I have made homemade butter with local milk, and it is divine, sometimes you have to stifle the Type A tendencies and simplify. So for this compound butter— what you call butter with flavor or ingredients added to it—I simply softened a stick of unsalted, organic butter.

INGREDIENTS

1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
¼ teaspoon fine sea salt

PREPARATION

Combine butter and chopped chives by mashing together with a fork. Stir in sea salt. Using a spatula, transfer butter mixture onto a sheet of parchment paper. Wrap parchment around butter, forming it into a 6– to 8–inch long cylinder. Twist the ends to secure the contents, place in a plastic bag, and freeze until firm. Use as needed, or freeze for up to two months.
