Avocado butter

As far as compound butters go, avocado butter is by far my favorite. It is easy to make, keeps for a while, goes well on just about anything, and is pure yumminess.

Full time 2 1/2 hours (includes sets time)
Makes 8 oz butter

The needs-

2 medium avocados, diced
1/4 cup butter melted and cooled
1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice (or lime)
1 tsp dried cilantro* optional
1 tsp ground cumin

The know-

In a personal blender or food processor, place diced avocado.

Add in cooled melted butter.

Pulse on low for 10-20 seconds or until texture is smooth.

Scrap down sides with a spatula and add in lemon juice, cilantro, and cumin.

Puree until well blended.

Lay out a piece of plastic wrap roguhly 12" long.

Scoop avocado mixture onto plastic wrap roughly 4" from one end.

Gently roll wrap into a tube shape, pinching ends/sides as you go. This will shape avocado mixture into a log.

Let set in refridgerator for 2 hours minumim before using.
