First, chop the butter up into uniform chunks and set aside. (Since I was putting mine in the Blendtec and was pretty sure it would make short work of the butter WITHOUT chopping it up first, I left it in stick form.)
You can use a food processor instead!
Pour the oil into the blender (or food processor) and add the herbs.
Process until finely chopped and the herbs have colored the oil a beautiful green color.
Pour the oil and herbs mixture out into a small bowl and add the butter to the blender (or to a stand mixer). Process until soft and light in color (approximately 5 – 7 minutes in the stand mixer).
Add the herb oil to the butter and process for another 1 – 2 minutes until oil is fully incorporated.
Spoon butter onto plastic wrap.
Roll into a log and chill for 2 hours before serving. (Here’s a trick: after you have spooned the butter onto the plastic wrap, hold both ends of the plastic and spin the log until the ends tighten like the picture above, then tuck the ends under. I hope that made sense. lol)
Enjoy!! This is delicious!!
