Sundried Tomato Butter

I read this post from Dainty Bites last night about sundried tomato butter and remembered the very yummy rum-and-raisin butter I had at Strictly Pancakes.

Since I had a very nice load of bread for lunch today, I decided to make a batch of flavoured butter myself.

This sundried tomato butter is pretty easy to make - I set aside some unsalted butter until it is soft then mixed it with some chopped sundried tomatoes, freshly cracked black pepper, a pinch of dried herbs and sea salt and then put it all in a pretty little bowl.

Then I threw it back into the fridge and after about an hour, it is nice and cold and ready for use.

I had it with some warm bread for lunch today.. I'd use it to make roasted chicken next time.

Oh you added dried herbs! I didn't think of that. Will add that the next round. (^.^)

Rum and raisin butter? Sounds interesting!

Yes, rum and raisin sounds good ya? I'd try it and use it for pancakes next time.. I only thought of dried herbs because it was sitting next to my black pepper.. heheh :)
