Fancy butters are super easy to make! All you need is softened (but not melted) butter and your mix-in ingredients. To soften butter either leave it out on the kitchen counter for a few hours or you can soften it in the microwave on low heat for 20 seconds or so. Once the butter is softened add your ingredients and stir-that's it! You can package these in small jars or in wax paper in a square container in the refrigerator overnight.
Citrus Butter: Mix together two sticks of butter and the zest of 1 lemon and 1 lime. This butter is great on fish or sauteed veggies (like Brussels sprouts-my favorite!).
Raspberry Butter: Mix together two sticks of butter and 4-5 tablespoons of raspberry jam. This butter is excellent on an afternoon toast with tea!
Enjoy! XO. Emma + Elsie
