Garlic Butter



Not only is this my first recipe of the year that is "summery" it's also the first recipe of the year that I am using freshly grown goods!  While the garlic we're growing at our local community greenhouse plot isn't quite ready, the parsley that I've been growing on my windowsill in my office is doing awesome!  I purchased it as a baby plant from the Farmer's Market last month, along with dill and basil, all of which are doing awesome.  I can't wait to make this recipe with fresh garlic too!  :)

Ingredients
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 cloves of garlic (use more or less depending on personal preference)
- 1/4 tsp granulated garlic (I like it to be extra garlicy
- pinch of fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
- squeeze of fresh lemon juice. 

Directions

Mince garlic and parsley until fine.  Whip into butter and granulated garlic until well combined.  Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

  1. I also like to add a bit of lemon juice to garlic butter before I spread it on my garlic bread. Cuts the calories, makes it easy to spread and add a nice zing. Horray for BBQ season.
