Transcript:Tomato and Rosemary ButterHi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make sun-dried tomato and rosemary butter.
Tomato and Rosemary Butter IngredientsFor this recipe, you will need:
- 10 sun-dried tomato halves
- 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
- 1/2 cup goat cheese at room temperature
- 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
Prepare the Sun-Dried TomatoesPut the tomatoes in a medium bowl, and pour enough hot water to cover them. Soak the tomatoes until they are softened, about 5-10 minutes. Drain the tomatoes and chop them into fine pieces.
Chop the Fresh RosemaryRinse the rosemary sprigs, and pat them dry. Remove the needles - they're the part of rosemary that gives the flavor. Chop them into fine pieces.
Combine the IngredientsAdd the butter, goat cheese, and rosemary to your bowl with sun-dried tomatoes. Use back of the fork to combine all ingredients.
Place a sheet of parchment paper or wax paper on your cutting board. Transfer the butter cheese mixture into the sheet of paper.
Chill the Tomato and Rosemary ButterShape the butter into a one-inch log. You can use your hands to do it. Fold it into the parchment paper, and store it in refrigerator until you're ready to use it.
You can serve it on crackers with cucumbers or as an addition on sandwiches. Thank you for watching. To learn more, visit us on the Web at food. about.com.
