Herb and other savory flavored butters are excellent tossed with pasta, spread on hot breads, added to soups and sauces or used as a topping for jacket potatoes. Grilled chicken or fish and steamed vegetables are also good matches.
Anchovies, curry powder, lemon zest, mustard, onion, paprika and tomato paste can all add an interesting savory flavor to butter. Sweet butters for pancakes can be made with sugar plus ground almonds or hazelnuts, lemon or orange zest, mixed spices, brandy, rum or liqueur.
