Garlic butter is really easy to make and is a great condiment to have on standby in the fridge for when your meal needs that extra flavour kick. It can lift the flavour of meat, fish and vegetables and is of course the perfect accompaniment to a warm baguette. The butter will keep happily for a week in the fridge and up to a month in the freezer.
Mince the garlic with either a knife or on a fine grater and transfer to a bowl
Add the butter and season with salt
Beat together with an electric whisk to combine
To store, wrap the garlic butter in baking paper and roll into a log
Try adding chopped herbs to the butter for extra flavour, thyme, tarragon and parsley all work particularly well. You could also try adding a bit of a kick from a pinch of chilli or some cracked black pepper.
