A Better Butter

There's nothing better than fresh butter-unless it's herbal butter! To make it, add one teaspoon lemon juice and four tablespoons finely chopped fresh herbs to two sticks unsalted, room-temperature butter. For a zesty herbal quartet, use basil, marjoram, chives, and rosemary. A tasty trio: parsley, chives, and tarragon. Refrigerate or freeze (wrap tightly) until you're ready to use it on fish, chicken, baked potatoes, or hot biscuits. Yum!
