MY REVIEW

"I made this butter a couple days ago but used fresh minced garlic. It was an instant hit!."

MY REVIEW

"I've been making this for a long time. Most of the time, unless in a pinch, I use fresh minced/chopped garlic. I also add a few 'turns' of fresh ground pepper - just because!! I've added fresh chopped chives and/or dill weed also. I try to keep it on hand for topping a bowl of hot pasta with a sprinkle of parmesan or toast or any meat right out of the pan or oven, for the finishing touch!! It also freezes quite well in a tightly sealed small container."

"Very good spread. We used it for our rolls at Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone liked it."
