The ingredients for each butter flavor are simply mixed well together and chilled, covered, for at least 30 minutes for the flavors to blend. They can also be frozen and then thawed in the refrigerator for later use if desired.




Perfect for Irish Soda Bread!

Lemon Parsley:


Extra yummy on waffles, warm biscuits, warm corn bread and for baked sweet potatoes

Richly flavored butter to place on pancakes or anything you would like to have a nutty, buttery flavor on. I like these on little tiny pancakes or on little crackers or on an occasional bowl of cheese grits.


  • 1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon


Place pecans in a single layer in a shallow dish.

Bake for 5 - 7 minutes at 350 degrees F. until the pecans are toasted.

Stir pecans into the remaining ingredients until blended.

Chill until ready to serve (Keeps for 1 week in refrigerator or 3 months in freezer).

Servings: 3/4 cup flavored butter
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cooking Time: 7 Minutes

A very delicately flavored butter made especially for tea-parties, bridal and baby showers. It can be tinted with food coloring to match the occasion. The original recipe called for just "butter", but I added the 2 sticks (1 cup) to make it simple since so few people make their own butter anymore.




In a Tupperware or Rubbermaid container with tight-fitting lid, place a layer of perfectly clean and spray-free rose petals. Lay the waxed-paper-wrapped butter on top of the rose petals. Cover the butter with another thick layer of rose petals and cover tightly. Leave in refrigerator for a day or at least overnight. A couple of days is best.

Remove from refrigerator and allow the butter to soften slightly if you intend to color it. Use food coloring sparingly until you get the color you want and mix it in thorougly. Shape butter whatever way you choose, then re-wrap and return it to the refrigerator until needed. You may save the rose petals to use as garnish if you like. Perfectly clean rose petals are edible.


This butter is delicious used on crackers or tiny sandwiches made with watercress or very thinly-sliced cucumber. The rose flavor is delicate, but what a delightful treat it is.

The recipe can be doubled or tripled depending on number of people to be served.

Since a frugal lifestyle is a creative lifestyle, making herb butter at home is an affordable way to add a little gourmet touch to your frugal meals.

The base for all six butters is 8 oz. of softened butter (margarine can be used, but is not as good).

Almost all of these butters both in seasoned butters and in herbed butters sound yummy, but I don't know what to put them on. What would these flavors of seasoned butters be used for?

The possibilities are endless. You can use them on pasta, rice, meats, vegetables, breads, potatoes and in soups and sauces.

If they are sweet seasoned (honey, maple, citrus, cinnamon, etc) you can use them on toast, waffles, bisquits, etc.
