A Christmas gift from my daughter

Culinary students or Foodies as some refer to be called receive food related gifts often. The above Stoneware Butter Keeper was a gift from my daughter this Christmas. I thought I would share this adventure with my followers.

The box claims to keep the butter soft, sweet, and spreadable for up to 30 days no refrigerator needed. So I took the opportunity to make some Tarragon Herb Butter and give this little gift a try.

Tarragon Herb Butter

1 pound stick unsalted butter

1/2 cup Tarragon leaf

Salt & pepper to taste

( I used white pepper so it did not show black speaks)

Unsalted Butter

Tarragon & Salt/White Pepper

I chose Tarragon because it goes with Chicken, Fish, eggs, salad dressings, tomatoes, & tomatoes. It also works great in Béarnaise sauce.

Combine until smooth

Inside container

Place inside the crock insert and add water to base of crock. Insert butter upside down.

January 2,2017 it’s been four days since putting butter in the crock. I used some yesterday and it was smooth and easy to work with and this morning the crock is still chilled. 

Update. As of January 8the the butter stayed amazingly chilled. Need to prepare a new compound butter and attempt this again.
