How to Make Garlic Butter (To Store)

by Spazbunny

I love garlic bread! I make garlic butter to store because its healthier, tastes better and cheaper too. Hope you enjoy the simple guide! :)


  • Garlic
  • Dried Italian herbs
  • Salt
  • White pepper
  • Butter
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    If you intend to have it the next day, I'd highly suggest making it the night before. The garlic aroma will have had more time to bind with the butter.

    Step 2

    Peel garlic. I usually use a whole bulb if I'm making to store.

    Step 3

    Chop it up finely

    Step 4

    Put butter into a bowl. Amount, up to you. If you like a higher concentration of garlic, put less butter

    Step 5

    Italian herbs. Very important! I use dried ones because I intend to store the garlic butter. I don't know but I have a strong feeling the garlic butter may go bad faster if you throw in fresh herbs.

    Step 6

    Season the butter with herbs, salt and white pepper.

    Step 7

    Throw in the garlic. Pop into microwave for approx 10secs (or more) to help the garlic aroma go into the butter.

    Step 8

    Mix till you get a creamy texture as shown. Taste it and add more salt and pepper till you're happy with it. If you've put in too much salt, add more butter.

    Step 9

    Put the garlic butter in a clean container and store in fridge. I've kept it for up to three weeks and it still tastes great :)

    Step 10

    Spread on bread and toast it to browning perfection. Enjoy!! :)
