It seems everyone has been brushing up on their baking skills over the past few months. I certainly am among them! My go-to is usually a no-knead sourdough or something thick like a 5-grain rye, (Recipes coming later... ).
However, what is fresh-baked bread without butter to go on top? I am a big fan of classic butter, and often just use that. But, there is something special about having a rich a flavorful butter to put atop breads, or eggs, or roasted meats, or grilled corn on the cob, roasted veggies....you get the idea!
I have made 4 savory and sweet varieties for you to try:
1) Cilantro/lime zest/poblano
2) Macadamia nuts/honey/orange zest
3) Garlic/lemon zest/chives
4) Chipotle in adobo sauce/cashews/cumin/smoky paprika
