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.
