Ranch Butter

  • Jump to Recipe
  • Butter is an amazing thing. While it is simply a whirl of heavy cream separating into butter solids and buttermilk, it is simply divine and the perfect base for a multitude of flavors.

    Flavored butter, or sometimes known as compound butter or seasoned butter, is an ingredient that can set the mundane apart from the spectacular as far as food goes.

    While ranch is usually mixed with the buttermilk portion of cream to make dressing, we are going to flip the script and mix it will the butter solids.

    This is one of my favorites and SO easy to make. Simply add a small amount of dry ranch mix to softened butter. It can be served immediately, but is best if it sits for an hour or so to let the flavors marry.

    Ranch butter can be used in so many ways. Here are just a few:

    The flavors of Ranch are so verstile and dreamy, that it can be used on nearly anything. It can easily be made at home with ingredients you likely have in your pantry or you can use a store bought packet.

    What do you need to make ranch seasoning?

    • dry powdered buttermilk
    • dried parsley flakes
    • dried dill
    • garlic powder
    • onion powder
    • dried onion flakes
    • ground black pepper

    How Do You Make Ranch Butter?

    After that, simply allow unsalted butter to come to room temperature so it is easily mashable, then blend. It is best to use unsalted butter because salted (regular butter) already has salt and this might be too salty.

    When a person who loves salt and carries her own emergency salt tin in her purse says something runs the risk of being too salty, then you best beleive her.

    After that you can refrigerate it again, pipe it out into fun and festive little shapes on wax paper or use it immediately. Ranch butter is also freezer friendly.
