Garlic butter

One of my favorite recipes is garlic butter. It's delicious on a baguette, when you're eating your soup. Nice to put on your toast. Because it has lots of flavors (and also a bit of odor, so you will have to get your friends / family joining in you're garlic butter experience).

You can buy it in our store, but unfortunately there are a lot ingredients that doesn't belong (in my opinion) in there, that still gets in. Like E621, a flavor enhancer, but one which can have negative site effects if you eat them (I know from experience).
So I choose to make it myself. It tastes much better, it doesn't take a lot of time to make it and it is healthier to.

You need for the butter the following ingredients:
- 3 ounces of butter, unsalted (about 70 gram), room temperature;
- 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped fine;
- 2 cloves of garlic, grated;
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice;
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt.

Use a fork to soften the butter. Mix the parsley garlic, lemon juice and sea salt through the butter.
Put it in a nice jar and leave it in the refrigerator until you're going to use it.

Have a nice dinner.
