Servings: 4


  • Plastic wrap OR 4 ounce jars


  • 1 stick salted butter softened to room temp
  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Italian parsley finely chopped
  • 2 small garlic cloves grated
  • 1/4 fresh lemon juice and zest


  • NOTE: start with room temperature butter so your compound butter will blend better. If your butter is chilled when you’re ready to start, you can microwave it for a few seconds on partial power – just be sure not to melt it! 
  • Finely chop the herbs then transfer all the ingredients in a medium size bowl. Mix until it’s combined well then spoon into 4 ounce size canning jars.
  • To make a log you'll slice into rounds, place the compound butter on a large piece of plastic wrap then roll into a cylinder shape. Twist the ends to seal the butter and refrigerate until it’s solid then slice it into rounds when you’re ready to use.
