DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the pot slightly and slowly only until warm to touch and butter just melted into the olive oil and salt.
  • Add the processed 4 ingredients to the pot and turn off the heat after stirring for 1 to 2 minutes. Continue stirring until well incorporated. (The less cooking of the garlic, the stronger the taste).
