  • 1-2 sticks of butter (I used one stick and filled the ice cube molds halfway)
  • 1-2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, crushed

    On low heat, melt a stick of butter into a small pan. In the meantime, finely chop the parsley and crush the garlic cloves. Mix into the melted butter for about 5 minutes and pour mixture into ice cube trays. Store in the refrigerator for about a week or in the freezer for longer.

      Have made garlic butter before, apart from the things that have been suggested i also use it on shops own garlic bread and occasionally melt some over a pizza whilst it’s cooking and pushing some under the skin of a chicken during cooking is also quite nice
