5 Better Butters
Try different flavor combinations for the butter! Add the flavorings to the butter a little at a time. Taste along the way by putting a smidgen of the butter on a biscuit or bread. Keep adding and tasting until it’s just right for you. A few ideas to try:

  1. Ginger-Lemon: dried ginger and freshly grated lemon peel.
  2. Orange-Cardamom: freshly grated orange rind and ground cardamom.
  3. Lemon-Pepper and Brown Sugar: freshly grated lemon peel, ground black pepper and brown sugar.
  4. Nutmeg-Clove: ground nutmeg and ground cloves.
  5. Spicy Jalapeno: minced jalapeno and lime juice.
