  • 1-2 tablespoons of chives (or your chosen herb/s)

  • Pinch of salt

  • Dash of lemon juice

  • 1 garlic clove (optional)

  • You will also need some baking paper


  1. Make sure your butter is room temperature then place it in a bowl.

  3. Add a squeeze of lemon, optional garlic (minced) and salt to taste, then mix well.

  4. Place your butter mixture on a piece of baking paper, roll into a cylinder and seal by twisting the ends.

  5. Place in the fridge to firm up.
