Directions

In a large bowl mix the butter and the other ingredients with a rubber spatula until evenly combined.

Lay about a foot long section of plastic wrap on a work surface. Put the herb butter on the bottom center of the plastic wrap, and form into a mound about 8 inches long. Fold the bottom edge of the plastic wrap over the butter and roll the enclosed butter forward until completely wrapped, to form a tube of butter about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Twist the ends together like a party favor. Refrigerate until firm or freeze for up to 1 month. Sliced as needed for corn on the cob, grilled steaks, or Chicken Kiev.
