These are just a few examples, and each herb brings its own unique taste to dishes, enhancing the overall flavor and aroma of various culinary creations.



  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons mixed fresh herbs (such as parsley, thyme, rosemary, and chives), finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, chopped herbs, and lemon juice (if using). Lemon juice adds a refreshing citrus note to the herb butter, but it’s optional.
  2. Mix the ingredients together until the herbs are evenly distributed throughout the butter.
  3. Season the herb butter with a pinch of salt and a dash of black pepper. Adjust the amount according to your taste preferences.
  4. Place the herb butter mixture onto a sheet of plastic wrap or parchment paper.
  5. Roll the butter into a log shape, using the plastic wrap or parchment paper to help you shape and tighten the log. Twist the ends of the wrap to secure.
  6. Place the wrapped herb butter in the refrigerator to chill and firm up. This will also help the flavors meld together.
  7. Once the butter has solidified, you can slice it into rounds or use it as a spread. Herb butter is fantastic on freshly baked bread, steamed vegetables, grilled meats, pasta, and more.

Feel free to customize the herb mixture based on your preferences and the flavors that complement your dishes. This herb butter can be stored in the refrigerator for a week or frozen for longer periods. Just slice off rounds as needed to enhance the flavor of your meals.
