Note: “Compound” does not mean “complicated”. Infact, these delicious additions to your Holiday spread are anything but…
Easy and packed with flavor and the goodness of Mediterranean Olive Oil, we made our Holiday assortment of compound butters this year using Olivio Buttery Spread. Whip with a variety of herbs, fruits and spices, reshape into logs using waxed paper and chill until firm enough to slice. Sweet or savory, these festive spreads make a fabulous side that brighten up your seasonal staples.
Here are three ideas to whet your appetite and inspire!
Cranberry Marmalade: 8 oz Olivio Buttery Spread whipped with 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh cranberries, zest from one naval orange, 2 Tbs sweet orange marmalade. Use: Spread this on Pumpkin Bread or Dinner Rolls or toss with Roasted Butternut Squash or Sweet Potato.
