The French have been onto this forever but I’ve only recently begun to appreciate the possibilities. Especially once I realized you don’t need to make the butter in advance and refrigerate it.
Starting with soft butter and flavouring it as you cook the protein means you don’t need to be super organized.
AND the butter is ready to melt and mingle with the pan juices much more readily than flavoured butter from the fridge.
I'm cheating here on the ingredients count. When I make it I use my own Stonesoup spice blend so there's only 1 ingredient instead of the 3 spices listed below. I hope you don't mind :)
