Make your food extraordinary.

Compound butter is a fancy name for butter that's flavored with other ingredients. The addition of this simple fix-up can make ordinary foods extraordinary. As a pat of compound butter melts over vegetables, grilled meats, poultry, or seafood, it transforms into a delicious sauce. Compound butters also complement freshly baked and toasted breads. If you haven't tasted a compound butter, try:

  • vermouth
  • whiskey
  • jalapeño-lime butters
  • hot peppers
  • pepper jelly
  • edible flowers
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • citrus peel
  • liqueurs
  • onions
  • garlic
  • shallots
  • spices
  • cheeses
  • toasted nuts
  • snipped fresh herbs
