"My wonderful mother gave me a superb Italian cookbook many, many years ago. It has a great savoury butter recipe. I have given variations for the different butters. Slices of butter can be used to garnish steaks, chops, chicken, fish or vegetables and I have also used it in sandwiches and canapé's. And best of all it can be frozen! After 1 hour of freezing portions can be cut off the roll and frozen individually for use on steaks or vegetables. To make open sandwiches and canapé's : Remove the crusts from the bread and spread with the savoury butter, cut into slices or shapes with cutters."
