Homemade butter Compound butters are flavored butters, typically made by mixing in herbs, liquids, or spices. Here, I've gathered a number of ingredients to play with. My goal was to create a range of colors and flavors that work well together.
Compound butter is simply butter with an added flavor or two mixed in. It's not just like buttering an item and then adding a sprinkle of the flavor - compound butter becomes a unique flavor unto itself. You can put these on pastries, meat, pasta - anything you like.
