I learnt about making butter from scratch after reading Sneh’s post here, how easy it is to churn cream into butter. These days I tend to rely more on good quality butter, given how expensive double cream can be and how good the butter quality is, I reckon it is a good shortcut to have. This garlic herb butter is perfect for spreading on savoury rolls, you can get the dough recipe here and in case of doubt do watch my simple video recipe on the rosemary bread.

The amount of garlic is really up to your preference, although I like to add at least 4 to 5 cloves of garlic for each cup of butter. I love to add some fresh herb leaves such as rosemary or basil, it makes a big difference in the aroma. If you are short of those, dried herbs are adequate enough.

Make a small batch and let me know if you like it!
