Recipe: Garlic & Basil Butter

I have a new-found love for compound butters. Compound butter is a butter with herbs or spices added in. Easily whipped up and stored in the fridge or freezer these beautiful creations will transform a meal in seconds.

Some of the more traditional uses for compound butters are on grilled steak (decadence) or fish. Other great uses include adding some compound butter to pasta for a quick side or lunch. You can also use it on baked potatoes, rice or vegetables for some added flavour.   Add a new dimension to corn on the cob!  Oh the possibilities are truly endless.
