Cold spreadable butter spread fat - herb butter variant
There are already many tips on how to quickly get butter from the fridge into a spreadable consistency. Some companies were selling with spreadable fats that contain butter and can be spread chilled. Unfortunately, these products usually cost more than real butter, although they often contain less than 50% butter. You can easily mix that yourself:
1/2 log butter (= 125g)
6 tablespoons of oil (sunflower, rapeseed or similar without much taste)
1 teaspoon of olive oil (not too much, otherwise it will taste bitter)
1 pinch of salt (or more: 1/2 teaspoon)
1 pinch of vanilla sugar
3 tablespoons of cold water (if necessary with a splash of lemon juice)
Put the butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds, it may ONLY SOAK but NOT LIQUID, otherwise it will be yellowish. Add oil, if necessary also salt and vanilla sugar (if you take only a pinch of it, it hardly rises, but completes the taste well). Stir well with the blender (stir frothy), then add the cold water and stir well again.
Various flavors can be made, e.g. with herbs to taste (2-3 teaspoons herbs of Provence, oregano, marjoram, parsley, rosemary, +/- garlic, onions, chilli, pepper, pepper):
e.g. only with garlic
e.g. with ground and roasted nuts and / or almonds
Put the mass in a plastic box or any shape and put it in the fridge with it. (I took a rinsed rectangular margarine wrapper and put the log in the butter dish after getting cold).
It is also possible to take ice-cream molds and thus obtain a single serving, e.g. for herbal butter.
This fat contains less cholesterol than regular butter, tastes like butter, can be spread straight from the fridge, contains only what you have put on your own (good to know about allergies or intolerances) and is much cheaper than finished products.
