Horseradish Butter (Pepperrotsmor)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Mrs B

This flavoured butter is from Norway. Traditionally you serve it cold with hot grilled or fried fish. Alternatively, do what I do and mix a few spoons into mashed potato (I’ve been known to add extra horseradish too) or mashed swede (rutagaba), MMmm! You need to allow for chilling time (for the butter and the cook!!!) before serving. Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005.

I used this to spread on crostini that was topped with very rare shavings of roast beef and julienned pickled beets. People loved them! It also does freeze beautifully.
