Southern Gentleman Lime Butter

This. Is. AMAZING. Try it on corn on the cob or use it as a steak butter (I love steak butter… it’s not bad for me, right?).

Ingredients:

Freshly squeezed juice of 1/2 lime

1 Tbsp Twisted Gourmet Southern Gentleman spice blend (less, more, depending on your preference)

Method:

Soften butter with a fork, add Southern Gentleman Spice Blend and continue to blend with the fork until seasoning is fully incorporated. Add the lemon juice a tsp or so at a time until you have achieved a lovely soft and blended consistency.

Slather on fresh summer corn, steamed green beans, a gorgeous grilled steak…. anywhere you really want a luscious burst of buttery goodness. I promise I won’t tell your doctor!
