This is similar to my recipe for basil butter except that I add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or a little lemon zest and use either white pepper or sometimes red pepper flakes. The butter really is delicious served with fresh corn on the cob. Read More

This butter is absolutely delicious! We made it for our 4th of July picnic to use on our corn on the cob and everyone loved it! I think I may become addicted to this! I put it on my baked potato last night and practically inhaled it! I'm sure it would be delicious on bread too. Read More

I made batches of this butter when my Basil was in season and gave it out to my friends. They all loved it. You can use it to put under the skin of a chicken roaster over veggies over pasta and on bread. Read More

THE best! It was stellar on fresh roasted corn on the cob! I then grated fresh Pecorino Romano cheese over the corn. A-mazing! I separated the recipe out and froze the butter in small cubes. The possibilities are endless! Thanks for sharing! Read More
