    Charlotte J's Note:

    Serve this herb-flecked butter on everything from mashed potatoes to dinner rolls. It’s also wonderful for rubbing under the skin of turkey and chicken.

      YUM! I love this stuff. I used it on bread and for frying eggs and I was really great. I did not have vermouth, so I left that out and added 1 clove garlic.

      I made this for Thanksgiving this year to go on the rolls and everyone raved about it. This was a butter my Mom said "she'd use on anything and everything that uses butter and not just for the holidays", Thanks for a wonderful addition to our families favorites. Delish
