Flavor. There are different ways to get it into what you’re eating. You can flavor what you eat or you can flavor what you put on what you eat. I lean more toward the latter. Rather than to drink flavored coffee, I’d rather have freakin’ awesome plain coffee and several flavors of creamer or syrups that I can play around with. It’s the same with bread. Rather than having flavored bagels or flavored breads, I’d rather have a plethora of butters, jams and cream cheeses so that I feel like I’m getting something different every day.
This super simple butter will WOW your bread…and it ain’t bad on pancakes, either.
