So we all know that I hate HATE food waste. And part of how I deal with leftovers at home is to transform it into something else entirely, so that I can use up every last bit of food!

Well, I recently made my own black garlic, AND made my own butter. So what do you do with a MASSIVE amount of garlic and butter sitting in your fridge? Garlic butter. Yes, it’s that easy.

Black Garlic Miso Butter Recipe

I adore the savoury flavours of miso, and I think that it brings out a certain richness in the black garlic very nicely. And that winning combination applies itself to a whole lot of other things, too. Dressings, sauces…you name it, we can make it.

But for now, just the butter. A butter that will sit waiting in your freezer to lift an otherwise boring meal with rich, savoury notes. Luxurious, dahling!
