Herbed Compound Butter


  • 1 pound unsalted, grass-fed butter, cut into cubes, at room temperature
  • 1⁄2 cup loosely packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, minced
  • 2 sprigs thyme, leaves only, roughly chopped
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Step 1

In a food processor, pulse the butter cubes to break them up, 4 or 5 pulses. Scrape down the bowl and process until the butter is creamy and smooth, about 45 seconds. Add the herbs, salt, and pepper and process until well combined, about 1 minute.

Step 2

Cut a 12-inch square of parchment paper and lay it on the counter. Scoop the butter onto the bottom quarter of the parchment and form the butter into a log about 4 inches long, using the parchment paper to help you create a compact log. Wrap the log in the parchment and twist the ends so the package resembles a wrapped candy.

Step 3

Refrigerate until the butter is firm, at least 2 hours or up to 6 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
