"I'm an avid fan of flavored butters, use them often as flavor enhancers in a variety of recipes, have a cookbook devoted to them & am pleased to add this recipe to my collection. It's actually a part of a recipe I found at the goodfooddotcomdotau website, but I didn't want to limit its use to a single recipe. Metric values were used by the recipe & were rounded by me to the nearest US imperial measurement using an internet conversion table. The # of servings will depend on the use you select - I estimated 6 servings. ENJOY!"
