How do you wrap compound butter?

Simply so, how do you wrap homemade butter?

Wrap the fresh butter in wax paper or parchment paper (a double wrap of plastic wrap and aluminum foil will work too) and roll into a log. Tie or tape the ends. Fresh butter can be kept refrigerated for up to 1 week or frozen up to 6 months.

Similarly, what is compound butter made of? A compound butter can be made by whipping additional elements, such as herbs, spices or aromatic liquids, into butter. The butter is then reformed, usually in plastic wrap or parchment paper, and chilled until it is firm enough to be sliced.

Additionally, how do you use compound butter?

Whip them up; stiffen the compound butter (most often in the freezer); then add a small knob — I adore that Old World kitchen word — to bunches of foods. Sweet compound butters are terrific on baked goods such as muffins or scones, or on pancakes, waffles or Dutch babies.
