1 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup fresh Freeman Herbs Organic Chives, diced
1 teaspoon finely minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Allow the butter to soften at room temperature for approximately 30 minutes before proceeding.
Melt a tablespoon of butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Slowly add the diced chives, minced garlic, and sea salt to the pan. Heat gently to soften the chives and release the fragrance of the garlic, which usually takes about two or three minutes.
Once the garlic becomes fragrant, turn off the heat to prevent the chives and garlic from browning. Set the saucepan aside to allow the butter mixture to slightly harden and cool down.
Use a rubber spatula to fold and mix the softened butter, ensuring all the ingredients are well incorporated.
If serving the same day, transfer the butter mixture into a serving bowl and refrigerate it for at least an hour before use.
If planning to use the butter later, refrigerate it until firm enough to shape. Then, place it on parchment paper and roll it into a log. Ensure the log is tightly wrapped and store it in the freezer.
This can be kept for up to six months when frozen.
