"I bought some of this butter at the supermarket a few weeks back and it was very expensive. I did use it in an array of recipes and loved it. Seeing I am growing garlic and have rosemary and parsley in the garden, I have decided to now make my own. The servings number's will depend as to how/what you use the butter in."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preheat oven your oven to 180dg C (approx 355dg F)

Step 2

Place the garlic (still in skins) in a saucepan and cover the garlic with cold water, bring to boil and then drain the garlic.

Step 3

Bring to the boil then drain ~ repeat this twice.

Step 4

Place the rosemary leaves and garlic in a baking tray with the oil and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the garlic is quite soft and the rosemary leaves are just crisp; Squeeze the garlic out of the garlic skin and discard the skins.

Step 5

Blend the butter, garlic puree, rosemary, parsley and seasonings in a food processor until it is of a very creamy consistency.

Step 6

Remove cream from blender/processor and roll the butter mixture into log shapes using foil, glad wrap or baking paper refrigerate until needed. This butter keeps very well in the freezer; so the extra logs can be stored quite well in the freezer.

I tagged this recipe because I thought it would be wonderful on chicken and I was right! I only made half the recipe (using 2 sticks of butter and 5 garlic cloves) and used the blender instead of the food processor. In hindsight I think the food processor would be easier but the blender did work. Delicious on my chicken and now I want to try it on baked potatoes and other things -- think it will be wonderful on just about everything! Thanks for sharing!
