I love garlic. I love chives. I love butter. So why not put them all together to make one heck of a tastegasm? That’s exactly what I did when I opened my CSA box to find some of the most gorgeous chives I’ve ever seen. Kath Vogelmann of Highcross Farm really knows what she’s doing when it comes to the herbs she has growing on the farm.
I roasted the garlic so it wouldn’t overpower the chives. Chives are strong enough on their own, I didn’t want them fighting with the garlic for the front row so to speak. If you don’t know how to roast garlic, I go through it here.
- 1 stick of salted butter, room temperature
- 1 head of garlic, roasted and chopped
- 1 good handful of chives, chopped
- Fresh cracked black pepper
- A drizzle of olive oil
Put it all in a bowl and mix thoroughly. That’s it! Slather it on whatever you wish. Tonight it was baked potatoes, tomorrow it will be grilled corn on the cob. Mmm!
