FOOD / 22

hello foodie friends.  i’m here today to butter you up, and i don’t mean that figuratively. we are gonna jazz up some butter like it has never been jazzed before. we’re going to impress friends, dazzle toast and elevate corn on the cob. you ready?

what you’ll need for the different flavors of butter:
•  8 tablespoons softened, unsalted butter
•  1 teaspoon lime juice, plus a little zest
•  2 teaspoons chili powder
•  2 cloves of garlic
•  2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
•  2 teaspoons curry powder
*  1 teaspoon cumin
*  1/4 cup honey
*  1 teaspoon vanilla
*  1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar
*  2 teaspoons coarse salt (i know you know maldon is the best)
*  1 teaspoon coarse ground pepper

what to do:
•  first, do not be alarmed by the ingredients. they are for several different butters.
•  always start with the base of the 8 tablespoons of softened butter in a small food processor.

and then mix in…
•  lime juice, lime zest and chili powder and spread it on some corn. yes, please!
•  or, garlic and rosemary to smother on grilled bread (and maybe sprinkle some parmesan cheese over the top)
•  curry and cumin to spice up baked fish (i put a square on top of a piece of fish, loosely wrap in foil and then bake)

•  honey and vanilla for waffles
•  cinnamon and sugar. i like to add this to quinoa and strawberries for a breakfast treat

•  salt and pepper for just about anything.  if you’re a meat eater, a dab on top of a steak is pretty supreme.

don’t be afraid to play around with your own ingredients.  the possibilities are endless, and these guys are really hard to mess up. good luck and let us know what fun combos you come up with!
