This summer I tried my hand at gardening for the first time! I haven’t posted about the process yet but posts are coming!
I started my basil inside in early May. It was a slow start. The sprouts were so tiny and fragile and I definitely thought they weren’t going to grow.
Well, I was very wrong. I transplanted them outside into a pot while I was still building my garden base. They looked so pathetic.
Within a week or so, they got much stronger and I had a few little sturdy basil sprouts. About two inches tall.
I transplanted the basil once again, this time into my garden and it took off!
I have had more basil than I’ve known what to do with.
Here’s one of the recipes I’ve made this summer.
Garlic Basil Butter
- 1 Stick of Butter
- 8 basil leaves chopped
- Lemon Pepper Seaoning
The recipe is very simple. Let the butter get to room temperature then mix in the basil and seasoning.
Keeping it simple with a great and easy basil butter. Compound butters make great gifts to go in food baskets.
I love fresh basil! My mom grows herbs and I love cooking with them. But she’s in the next state and I haven’t had time to start my own garden. Maybe I’ll do that this spring, because I would love to try that butter! I think I’d put it on everything!
Looks delicious, I have to try it!!
Oh my gosh! I bet this adds so much flavor to different recipes. Great idea!
This *is* so simple, and I’m sure amazing with so many things! Love growing herbs at home – so easy to just grab some to make everything better 🙂
This is a great, easy way to add more flavor to butter – love it!
I love flavored butters! These sound so so good.
I love flavoured butter, I have to try this recipe sounds so good. It would taste so good with a muffins or english muffin. Corn bread is s user good idea too.
I actually made cornbread to go with it. The post will be up in a week!
I love basil. Such a versatile herb but I have never attempted to use it in a butter. Sounds incredible especially in that corn bread recipe- yummy!
YUM! This looks amazing.
