(Experiment 214) Garlic butter

 Oh man, garlic butter on warm bread? Funny enough with all this covid crap I realized I hadn’t made any for several months.

Let’s get to it

Please adjust garlic quantity to your taste. With one bulb I find there’s only a hint of garlic, 2 is my magic number, 3 is too powerful.

 You need:

  • 169gr softened unsalted butter
  • 2 bulbs of garlic
  • salt
  • ~1tbps freshly chopped parsley
  1. Roast the bulb of garlic in the oven for 30 mins at 350F. I put it on a baking sheet with foil paper.
  2. Take it out of the oven and let it cool ~5 mins.
  3.   Extract the garlic from the peel and put the garlic in a bowl and mash it. Add the butter and mash it with the garlic.
  4. At this point add minced parsley, salt to taste
  5. This will keep in your fridge for 7-10 days but I prefer to just freeze it in an ice cube tray. I then transfer them in a Ziploc bag and take one off when needed. Either thaw in the fridge or nuke it in the microwave for ~10 seconds.
Frozen garlic butter, just pop them out
and toss them in a Ziploc

Extra: If you feel like playing around there are multiple ways you can modify the taste of it this butter. Here are a couple of items you may want to add and test if you like it

  • Soy sauce
  • Lemon juice
  • Paprika
  • Chives or onions
  • Parmesan cheese
