Comments: The Universally Useful Herb Butter

Comments

This Herb Butter must be delicious as I can imagine form your description. I will try to follow your steps.
Thank you for sharing it with me.

I've always wondered why people don't tinker more with the herb mix. Especially seeing as tarragon is a key ingredient in bearnaise sauce (and who doesn't love that?!). Thanks for suggesting a way to shake things up.

I thought the tarragon and oregano and garlic combination was particularly good. If you are just using it as an accent (as opposed to cooking offal) a little lemon juice might bring out the flavours a bit too - I just didn't think of it.

Oh, and if you like lively herb sauces, I have to say that my absolute favourite is Nigel Slater's Salsa Verde, with parsley, mint, basil, garlic and anchovies. It is absolutely heavenly, I end up stealing spoonfuls to eat it straight:
