Making flavored butters at home is very easy. In addition, being such a versatile food, we can modify the recipe to our taste by changing or including the ingredients we prefer.
The most important thing to prepare garlic butter is to take it out of the refrigerator for a few hours, so that it is not cold. Otherwise, it would be very difficult to mix it with the rest of the ingredients. Another way to make the butter to the point of ointment is to put it in the microwave for a few seconds.
