Reprinted from Platters and Boards by Shelly Westerhausen and Wyatt Worcel with permission by Chronicle Books, 2018. Compound butter is just a fancy way to refer to flavored butters. These can be served soft, right out of the food processor, in a small dish, or rolled in parchment paper and firmed up in the refrigerator before being served by the slice. These butters have a great texture and color that will add depth to any presentation. They go great on fresh vegetables, crackers, or bread slices.
