Keto Friendly Herb Butter

Keto Friendly Herb Butter

If you have a herb garden or even if you purchase your fresh herbs at a local farmers market it is always nice to have a way to use all the herbs and avoid wasting some of them. Making some Keto Friendly Herb Butter is a nice way to do that and it will add flavor to your recipes for a while if you keep a little in the freezer for when you need it.

I want to say Hi to Jennifer who left a request in the comment section of a recipe asking that I add a recipe or two for herb butters. I read all the comments and if you, like Jennifer want more information about a recipe or are in need of a keto recipe let me know in the comment sections and I will do my best to share that information asap.

All Purpose keto friendly Herb Butter

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted farm fresh butter, softened to room temperature
1/4 cup finely chopped mixed herbs (such as basil, cilantro, thyme, sage, parsley, dill, chives, tarragon, oregano, marjoram or rosemary)

In a small bowl, combine all ingredients. Mix well until herbs are distributed evenly.

Scoop it onto a piece of waxed paper or parchment, shape into a cylinder or disk, and seal ends by twisting if you are going to freeze it.

If you plan to use it within the next few days, pack into a ramekin and cover with plastic wrap. Chill in refrigerator until firm, at least an hour.
