    Default Garlic Butter

    How do you make garlic butter?
    I would think it would be fairly straight forward.
    I know the ingredients would be Garlic, butter and green herbs, but don't have a clue about the making method.
    Do you have to bake whole garlic first to get it soft enough to puree it or something?

    Either mince your garlic with a knife or stick it through a garlic crusher (no need to cook first), then mix into softened butter with a knife - add garlic and herbs to suit your personal taste. Watch out as it will taste stronger once cooked

    Up to you!

    I prefer to crush the garlic in a press, chopping any uncrushed pieces, my prefered herbs are parsley, dill and/or rosemary, which I chop finely.

    Then just put the softened butter (i.e. it's been out on the side for an hour or two) garlic and herbs in a bowl and mash with a fork to mix.

    If you are in a hurry then a tube of garlic puree and a spoon full of cheats chopped garlic from a jar will do...

    As to amounts - I use a clove of garlic per portion if not more.
