Green Garlic Compound Butter

Green Garlic is the star of this recipe. It is a young garlic and it available in the spring, usually from farmer's markets. It has a milder garlic flavor and looks more like a green onion than garlic. This is great on everything from a baguette to grilled meats or fish. 

4 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. minced green garlic
1/2 Tbsp. minced basil
1/2 Tbsp. minced Italian parsley
1/4 tsp. salt
Pinch freshly ground black pepper

In a small bowl, combine the butter, green garlic, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper until well mixed. Taste and adjust salt and pepper if necessary. If using right away keep at room temperature. If using later, transfer mixture onto sheet of plastic wrap. Then, roll the mixture in the plastic wrap into a log and twist the extra plastic wrap on the ends. Place in freezer or refrigerator and slice into discs to use.
