Deliciosa mantequilla de naranja

Delicious orange butter

Orange butter is delicious with both sweet and savory dishes. Here you will find different recipes: We recommend sweet butter for breakfast spread on bread or sponge cake. Savory butters give a special flavor to meat, fish or baked potatoes - try it with asparagus or barbecued meat or fish! You can also use them to prepare canapés or sandwiches.

All recipes are prepared in the same way: Take the butter out of the refrigerator a couple of hours before using it. Wash the orange and dry it before grating the peel. Beat the butter until fluffy and incorporate all the other ingredients. If you have one, you can use a food processor to prepare these recipes. Store the butter in the refrigerator to harden.

To shape the butter, you can use aluminum foil or baking paper: Use it to form a roll that you can then store in the refrigerator or freeze to use at your convenience.
