Garlic Chipotle Butter

Garlic Chipotle Butter

When E and M were visiting with the girls, one of the activities we did was oyster shucking.  Chris and I were in charge of making the condiments for the oysters.  And Kimi took care of the barbecue items.  We made a mignonette and this butter.  We used this butter to barbecue the oysters and it was delicious! If you have never been oyster shucking before, it’s quite the experience.  It’s great for big groups but be sure to bring plenty of muscles with you.

Radish and Butter Crostini

Radish and Butter Crostini

This recipe was once again inspired by Lindsay of { fleur de sel }.  I was intrigued by her Radishes with Butter and Salt recipe that I thought I’d give this one a try using my Homemade Butter.  What makes this dish really stand out is the good quality butter.  I love the freshness from the butter and the crunch from the radishes.  The butter (if using a good one) doesn’t make it oily or heavy.  Plus, this is such a beautiful and easy dish to make when you have company over.  Or a quick and easy snack to make for yourself in the afternoon.  Enjoy!

All you really need is heavy cream and a mixer and voilà, you have butter! So if you haven’t gone over to { fleur de sel }, take a look at some of Lindsay’s delicious recipes.
