Sesame Butter

Sesame Butter

After my Yujacha Butter experiment, I decided to explore the world of compound butters a bit more. This recipe is called Sesame Butter with both sesame seed oil and sesame seeds mixed together with a little salt and sugar.

2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
1 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
2 tbsp dark sesame seed oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar

Put all the ingredients in a non-reactive bowl (preferably glass or ceramic). I used one of my Korean ceramic jjigae bowls.  Mix well with a wooden spoon until all the ingredients are completely combined.

This butter complements steamed vegetables such as green beans, carrots, cauliflower or broccoli.

  1. @ Jennifer: Yes, it would be awesome smeared on toast. <br /><br />@ Carol: That&#39;s what I like about these compound butters, most of them are pretty simple.
