Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, and for those of you who are hosting a brunch, you’ll definitely want to try out these wine flavored butters.  They make delicious condiments, which are wonderful on their as a spread for biscuits or other breads, but they can definitely do double duty too.

Use the Courtois & chive butter (on right) to saute vegetables or cook up eggs.  The Yadkin Creek & strawberry butter would look so pretty in a small canning jar with a bow and gift tag for Mom to take home as a sweet reminder of her day.

As usual with our recipes, these butters couldn’t be simpler to make. To make these butters, just be sure to soften the butter to start.  Then combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. I scooped out the butter and rolled into logs in plastic wrap, but you could fill a small jar or bowl with the butter instead.  Then place in the refrigerator for a few hours to let it harden and you are ready to go.

The Courtois butter is flavored with fresh chopped garlic chives.  This would be a good spread for corn, asparagus, or just a nice thick slice of sourdough bread.  Combine 5 Tablespoons softened butter, 2 Tablespoons Courtois, and 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh chives.

The Yadkin Creek butter has strawberries and a touch of maple syrup to sweeten it.  It would taste delicious shmeared all over a dry creek wine biscuit and looks pretty too!  For this butter, combine 5 Tablespoons butter, 1 Tablespoon Yadkin Creek, 1 large roughly chopped strawberry, and 1 teaspoon maple syrup.

If you’d like another recipe for that Mother’s Day brunch, try making a Courtois Omelet.  I hope you enjoy this recipe.  If you try this at home, let me know what you thought of it in the comments below.  Cheers!
