Yield: Yields 1/2 cup seasoned butter.
Basil butter is especially delicious made with sweet basil. I keep it on hand for adding a touch of basil flavor to just about anything. Try stirring it into hot pasta, polenta, or mashed potatoes; tossing it with cooked vegetables; melting it over grilled meats; or serving it softened, with bread. This recipe can easily be doubled.
