Better Butter (high in Omega 3's) posted 26.4.13
It's a great way to include more good fats in your diet - without knowing you're doing it! Great for the brain. This butter is yummy, easy to spread and takes 5 minutes to make. One to try.
250ml Flaxseed oil (or other high Omega 3 oil ie. Walnut. Or Olive oil if just want less butter)
250ml Warm-Hot Water
Chop butter into chunks add to food processor, then add Oil and Water.
Process until all mixed together and starts to thicken.
Scoop into 500-750g container. Store in fridge to go hard ready for spreading.
Keep stored in fridge.
(I have also stored it in the freezer when making larger batches - or if you don't go through much).
Just remember you won't be able to use it in cooking if it has Flaxseed oil in it.
