This butter is so versatile and a great way to use wild garlic. You can use it to make chicken kiev or add a slice on top of a steak or fish to add lot’s of flavour, it would be great in mash potato too. I was worried about getting the shape right but thankfully it rolled into a log shape really easily. The best part is keeping it in the freezer and just slicing bits off as and when you need it.
Ingredients (makes 1 log)
- 250g pack of unsalted butter, softened
- good pinch of sea salt, to taste
- 50g wild garlic leaves
- Mash the butter in a bowl with some sea salt – start with 1/2 tsp, then taste before adding more. Stir in the wild garlic. Using a piece of baking parchment, roll and shape the butter into a log, then twist the ends to form a cracker. Chill until needed. You can freeze the log and cut off slices as needed.
