    Hey folks,

    This was one of my first experiments with flavoured butter. I made some Porcini butter, a really easy to make and very useful. Then - pushed some under the skin of a whole turkey thigh, along with some sliced garlic, and grilled indirectly over 350F until internal temperature of 165F, about 1.5 hours.

    For the Porcini butter:

    - 2 sticks (8 oz) butter, unsalted

    - 2 oz dried Porcini mushrooms

    - 3 garlic cloves

    - 2 tsp black truffle puree (optional, of course)

    First, soak the Porcini in boiling hot water for 30 min, then - squeeze them out and put into a food processor bowl. Add the chopped garlic cloves, the truffles puree and softened butter, and process until well blended. 

    Place all the butter from the food processor bowl on a plastic wrap sheet, roll it into a cylinder and freeze. The butter will keep for several months frozen.

    Hey Leah,


    Yeah, that's just what the mushrooms made to this meat. And the addition of the black truffles puree made it very special. 

    You should really try that butter... Amazing!
