Commonly Asked Questions

The ideal size is up to you, but generally, 1-inch cubes work well for bite-sized enjoyment.

Can I Make the Butter Ahead of Time?

Absolutely, the Orange Ginger Butter can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Just make sure to let it come to room temperature before serving.

What’s the Best Way to Store Leftovers?
