Farmers Eat Butter

I grew up on a farm in Iowa. My parents were primarily hog farmers with a few cows from time to time while my grandparents were dairy farmers. When I think of butter my memories immediately takes me back to my childhood. Butter
was always sitting out on the counters to soften for toast for breakfast, lunch for sandwiches, and dinner to butter bread with. Butter always came in sticks and sat on a white plate in the fridge. There was no substitute for butter, only real butter.
As an adult I only purchase real butter for my family. I buy sticks of butter for my baking purposes and keep a small container of butter mixed with olive oil (makes it spreadable) for everything else.
I received a recipe card in the mail earlier this month for Annie's Compound Herb Butter. The ingredients looked good and I never thought of mixing up my own flavored butter so I knew I had to give it a try. It turned out fantastic
and I now use it on toast and sandwiches. Try making a grilled cheese using an herbed butter for a more sophisticated taste. I like to add tomatos, onions, and brie to my grilled cheese too! Try slicing some crusty deli bread and serving your flavored butter
to your guests as an appetizer. The best part is you can control the amount of flavored butter you want. Give it a try, you won't be dissapointed!
