How to make your own delicious herb butter 

Homemade herb butter is both easy to make and a certain hit with your guests. And then it suits almost any occasion – from steaks to summer potatoes and freshly baked bread.

Of course, a variety of different recipes and combinations exist. However, you should always consider what the butter is going to be used for. If you plan to serve it with fish or shellfish, for instance, an herb butter with dill or watercress is a perfect match. 

Below, we give you our fresh favourites.
