Cooking time is chilling time. Herb butters are a nifty way to spice up any meal. I like herbed butters as a quick easy way to flavor frozen or canned veggies. Just add a dab of herbed butter and heat up the veggies. You can substitute margarine for the butter.


  1. Let butter soften to room temperature.
  2. Beat in other ingredients.
  3. Pack butter into molds or crocks or form balls with a melon baller.
  4. Chill for at least 3 hours before serving.
  5. Can be stored for upto 1 month in the refrigerator or 3 months in the freezer.

I don't know if I had the world's juiciest lime or what, but I had to use an entire cup of butter just to get the ingredients to combine. The flavor is very tart. I tried some on toasted herb bread, and it made a refreshing change. Thanks for posting!
