Ingredients:

For the Fig Butter:

For the Harissa Butter:

For the Citrus Caper Butter:

 

A sliver of melted butter can take your fluffy pancakes, juicy steak, salmon fillet, or warm biscuit to the next level. Now, imagine all your favorites with the added touch of flavored butter—sweet or savory. Absolutely delicious. Making your own flavored butter couldn’t be easier or more effortless a process, either. We have a few tried and true combinations straight from our pantry, but feel free to get creative! Any spice, spread, jam or herb makes for a great mix-in with your standard stick of butter! You can use a blender or food processor to combine the butter and whatever other flavors you select. You can also easily mix your ingredients into the butter by hand. Once mixed, place your flavored butter in parchment, wax paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log shape and refrigerate for up to two weeks. You can even extend your flavored butter’s life by freezing it in smaller packets for future use and easy defrosting!

Fig Butter:

Mix in fig jam for a fruity butter that adds texture with its seeds and a sweet nutty flavor that complements anything from cheese ravioli to your morning waffles.

Harissa Butter:

For a spicy, savory butter, try mixing in our Organic Harrisa spread! Harissa has the flavors of sweet and mild dried peppers, garlic, tomato, olive oil, cardamom, salt and coriander.

Citrus Caper Butter:

This tangy, flavorful butter with lemon zest and capers is perfect for fish, crusty bread or paired with vegetables like grilled asparagus or cauliflower. Adapt it with whatever herbs you have on hand. Throw in craisins or raisins for surprise sweetness!

 

Making your own flavored butter couldn’t be simpler. Try experimenting with different flavors at home!
