"This butter is wonderful on corn on the cob and French bread. I make this all summer long, while my basil is growing in the garden."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I love this! I like to use a small cookie scoop or melon baller and freeze them on a cookie sheet. Then I put them into a zip lock bag and store in the freezer. You can take out 1 or 2 as needed. Tastes great on vegetables, in pasta sauce, spread on corn or bread. Yummy!
I liked this but thought the lemon juice was just a bit overpowering. I will probably make it again but cut the lemon juice in half. And yes! It is good on corn on the cob!
I left out the sugar and salt and it is SO good! This keeps really well and for quite a while in the refrigerator. It's good on fresh bread, toast, baked potatoes, steamed veggies and eggs.
RECIPE GROUP: The lemon came through a little stronger than I had anticipated, so next time I would either decrease the lemon or add another pinch of sugar so the flavors complement each other better.
Thank you Mommumma!
I used one clove of garlic, no sugar, and I didn't use the food processor, just finely chopped everything and mixed well. Wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated until ready for use. Served on steaks, and homemade garlic bread. Thanks!
Recipe Group Selection: 11, July 2015 ~ We really enjoyed this butter on Italian bread, Italian bread broiled and on corn on the cob. I took a hint from Christina, regarding the lemon juice and did cut it back. With that suggestion, this was perfect. We like the flavor and it is a summer butter that I would make again.
Fantastic recipe!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! Just did my taste test, and OMG this will be perfect on my corn side dish for hubby on Valentine's Day. Love Allrecipes.com. Traci-VT
Like other reviewers I used a little less lemon juice, and I left out the salt and sugar. I just had to add a good AllRecipes crossover: I made the Basic Crepes on this site with two tablespoons melted basil butter. Then I got to eat very, very yummy mushroom and bacon stuffed herb crepes. I win!
