Garlic Butter

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sackville

This is as simple as it gets. We keep a pot of this in the fridge and also take it camping so we can have easy garlic flavour for all our dishes. Use it in pasta, soups or for super-easy garlic bread. The salt in the butter keeps the garlic from going bad and we have successfully carried this bike touring in hotter climates (up to 25C during the day) for a week. The butter melts during the day in these conditions but reforms at night when it's cooler.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make sure the butter is relatively soft.
  2. Mix in the garlic cloves.
  3. Add dried herbs of your choice, if you wish.
  4. Put in an air tight container and ideally leave a day before using so that the garlic flavor really permeates the butter.
