Whipped Lemon Butter


For most of our parties, we usually serve some sort of bread. A nice hole-y sourdough, a baguette, maybe some crisp bread... and we usually just put out our regular butter, too. Well, no more! This tasty lemon butter whips up in a heartbeat and is really yummy. I adapted it from a recipe in "Systrarna Sydow's Festmat" which is a fantastic new cookbook! I'd have followed it more to the letter had I had the proper ingredients, but as it happened I didn't have any white wine vinegar so substituted sherry vinegar. Delicious anyway - it's slightly acidic but also aromatic and salty. I might try adding a little touch of honey next time, I have a feeling that'll make it even better.

Whipped Lemon Butter
100 g butter, softened
good pinch of sea salt
zest and juice from one lemon
1-2 tsp white wine vinegar (or sherry vinegar)

Just whip all ingredients together on high speed. Taste to see if the flavor balance is to your liking. Serve with your favorite bread.
