How To Make Tomato Butter

Our tomato butter recipe comes from chef Eduard Jaisler who uses San Marzano tomatoes for the ultimate flavor.

You will need:

  • salt and pepper, to taste

Here are the steps the chef recommends:

1. Blend the tomatoes with basil and salt.

2. Place the mixture inside a micro sieve (or a colander covered with cheesecloth) and let it stand overnight.

3.  Blend the strained tomato liquid with the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
