The Technique 

Lemon-Thyme Compound Butter

Compound butters are highly seasoned jewels that elevate grilled meats beautifully but I’ve always been particularly fond of accompanying them with freshly baked homemade rolls. Look to them to add bold flavor to rice & pasta or toss with steamed vegetables. Although this formula features thyme, lemon zest & garlic, almost any herb & citrus combination would work just as well. Learn how to make Lemon-Thyme Compound Butter that’s ideal to use for a variety of entertaining needs.

How To Zest Fresh Citrus

Originally developed for woodworking, the sharp, tiny blades of a microplane grater make this simple preparation task a breeze. Apply this technique to any citrus fruit for your most flavorful recipes ever.

The Technique

Hold the microplane grater over a cutting board, allowing the tip to rest over the surface at an angle. Swipe just the outer portion of the citrus over the tool towards the board. Turn the fruit after each swipe. You only want to collect zest with color & not the white, bitter pith just underneath the surface. Repeat the process until you have collected the amount needed for the recipe. Execute this process before juicing the fruit in order to make the best use of your purchase.
