RECIPE: Guava & Thyme Compound Butter
Makes 1 cup
Savvy Tip: you can find guava paste in well-stocked Caribbean or Asian grocery stores. You can also purchase from online stores such as Amazon.
¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
3 tbsp guava paste, softened
1 tsp fleur de sel
2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
In a small bowl, mix the softened unsalted butter and guava paste with a fork until smooth.
Add the fleur de sel and thyme leaves and mix well. Note: you can use it immediately at this point.
For storage: Place the compound butter on a parchment paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log, secure the ends, and refrigerate for up to a week. You can also freeze for up to a month. To use, simply slice the amount butter that you need.
