( I know, I know. Two food related posts in one week. And garden season is long gone.. )
(But...I just found it in my draft folder. Oops. )
At the end of my garden season, I always try my best to save and preserve as much as I can from my garden. I don't want to waste any of my hard work.
Normally I use my chives all summer, and then just let them die out at the end of the season.
Not this year. This year I chopped up the remainder and mixed it in with some softened real butter
(nothing from a tub) and made delicious chive butter! I used 3 sticks and added all my chives. It made it pretty strong, so a little goes a long way. Just play around with how much you add for your taste!
I've used it on toast, plain bread and even under the skin of a turkey. Yum!
What other things to you mix with butter?
