Today I want to share a Wild Garlic Butter Recipe.
This recipe is amazing with any kind of steak and is a wonderful addition to any BBQ :)
To make this butter you will need:
2-3 Cloves of Garlic
Salt if necessary
Peel the garlic and add it to your food processor.
Add your wild garlic leaves and some salt (If you use salted butter this may not be necessary) and whiz them together.
In another bowl, add 400g (or as much butter as you desire) of room temperature butter. Add the herb and garlic mix to the butter and squish together with a potato masher or a fork.
Once it is mixed well, lay half of the portion onto some cling film.
Close the cling film and roll until you have a sausage formed butter.
Do the same with the second portion.
Place both sausages in a ziploc bag in the freezer.
Remove from the freezer half an hour before you need it and let it dribble and melt over your steaks and BBQ meat .....ooh got to go, hungry!
Join me next week for more herby fun!
