Making Flavoured Butters

Learning how to make flavoured butter is not difficult and could ultimately change the way you use butter with food in the future.

It’s pretty straight forward really, all you do is soften some butter (DO NOT MELT) and then mix in whatever herbs and spice you like. Lastly you roll the butter in the clingfilm and put it in the freezer.
Then whenever you need some flavour added to a dish simply cut off a little section and melt with whatever it is you making.

As part of the Wings Across America book I’m cooking there are 6 wings butters all of which I made on the weekend and 4 of which I filmed.
Here are the first two recipes:
