tarragon mustard citrus butter

July 8, 2018

Lots of tarragon in your garden? This takes less than five minutes to come together, with no cooking or blending required, and you’ll thank yourself for having this in the house.

Chop tarragon finely.
Add whole-grain or dijon mustard.
Add some lemon zest.
Add all ingredients to room-temperature butter.
Mix well – you can use a blender, but can be blended easily by hand.

I didn’t measure – used about 3 T of butter to about a half-teaspoon of mustard, the zest of about half a lemon, and a maybe a tablespoon of chopped tarragon. One of my favorite compound butters by far. Complicated flavor. I loved it with whole-grain horseradish mustard. Can’t wait to try this with chicken. I expect this to become one of my new favorites.

So far, it’s amazing:

– brushed onto corn
– fresh tomato and tarragon mustard butter sandwiches
– fresh radish and tarragon mustard butter sandwiches

I was always more into infused oils, like  la jiao jiang (hot pepper oil) – but this might be converting me to the world of compound butter. What is your favorite compound butter?
