 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  Cup           lightly salted butter -- at room temp
    2      Cloves        crushed garlic
 In a medium bowl, cream the butter with wooden spoon until light and fluffy.
 Add the garlic and blend well. Transfer to a sheet of heavy-duty foil, roll
 the foil around the mixture, forming a log 8 inches long by 3/4 inch in
 diameter. Tuck in the ends of the foil, label and freeze. Will keep for up
 to 2 months. Use to flavor potatoes, bread, other cooked veggies, Rice pasta
 and pasta sauces.
 I really like to keep these “butters” on hand in the freezer for special
 times.  They are especially attractive when company comes, special dinners
 or holiday meals. Use to flavor rice and veggies or to spread on bread.  A
 1/4 slice equals 1 tsp. a 3/4 " slice equals a Tbsp. I prepare the butter,
 place in a decorator tube, (pastry bag or just a plain OLE baggy with the
 corner snipped.)  I make my design on a jellyroll pan, cover with plastic
 wrap, freeze until hard, place in gallon-sized bags.  Sometimes, I just roll
 up into a log and freeze that way.
