6 Recipes for Compound Butter| The Pioneer Woman

As a follow-up to the 7 Health Benefits of Grass-Fed Butter Nutrition – Dr. Axe, I found a few recipes using butter, more specifically “compound butter”.  What exactly is compound butter?  Here is a quote from The Pioneer Woman and her quick “compound butter” tutorial.

“… Compound butter.. is softened butter, whipped with various sweet or savory ingredients. While the concept is simple, the potential flavor combinations are endless. Pair scones, rolls, pancakes, waffles or cornbread with butters flavored with orange or lemon zest, maple syrup, honey or cinnamon. Pair meat, vegetables, fish and bread with butters mixed with herbs, spices, cheese or citrus zest.”

Her recipes include the following phenomenal butter recipes:

  • Smoked Paprika & Rosemary Butter
  • Cinnamon Maple Butter
  • Herb Butter
  • Jalapeno Lime Butter
  • Orange Honey Butter
  • Gorgonzola Sage Butter

7 Health Benefits of Grass-Fed Butter Nutrition – Dr. Axe

Butter?…healthy?…what? Yes! At least if you use the right kind. I’m not talking about just any old butter, but proper grass-fed, preferably cultured, butter. It is an amazing source of healthy medium chain triglycerides, (MCT), the same type as in coconut oil. Did you also know it’s okay to add butter to your steamed green beans or broccoli? In fact I encourage it. Why? Because the fat-soluble vitamins in vegetables cannot be absorbed into your body without fat that is consumed at the same time. So, yes, all those years you were trying to be “good”, and used “fat-free” dressing on your salad, or ate veggies without fat, you were robbing your body of valuable fat soluble vitamins: vitamin A, D, E and K.

I found a wonderful article about the benefits of proper, grass-fed butter, by Dr. Axe. The link is below the infographics.
