Paula’s Favorite Combinations: 

Lemon Dill Butter (using lemon zest and fresh chopped dill) cut a piece to melt over broiled fish.
Blackberry Lemon Butter (using fresh smashed blackberries and lemon zest) put some on your morning biscuit.
Honey Butter (using fresh local honey) perfect on pancakes, biscuits and dinner rolls.

Paula’s Gift Packaging Tips:  I like to save my old jam jars and fill them with a special compound butter. I tie a ribbon around the lid and attach a tag with the name of the recipe on it.
