I love this butter. It's so quick and easy to make, and makes an awesome condiment for a whole pile of different foods. I've had it on bunless burgers, steak, eggs, and roast beef. My daughter loves it so much, she will literally eat it with a spoon. It's fragrant and flavorful and wonderful in every buttery way.
