Cara Cara Orange-inflused Butter
A wonderful easy butter for vegetables.
- 1 stick butter
- Zest of one orange
Melt the butter on low heat. Wash and dry orange and remove the rind with a peeler or sharp knife. Ideally, you will be able to get the skin off without any of the white pith, which will give you a bitter flavor.
However, if some white pith does come off, use a knife to gently scrape the skin until all the pith is removed. Put the rind, in chunks, into butter and heat it gently until the orange flavor is imparted. Remove chunks of zest, serve brushed on leeks.
