TIP OF THE DAY: Compound Butter (Flavored Butter)

Herb butter and Roquefort butter are most often served atop steak; anchovy butter is a classic with grilled seafood. Pecan butter garnishes pancakes in the best restaurants.

Compound butter, or finishing butter, is a compound delight: It makes everything it touches taste better. It can be served in pats or melted into a sauce. They are meant to be decorative: not simply melted butter, but punctuated with seasonings and/or color.

Compound butters are an easy, prepared-in-advance alternative to sauces. Learn all about compound butter in our review of Epicurean Butter, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week. It includes the recipe for making your own compound butters.
