Garlic & Herb butter:
3 garlic cloves
6-12 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley
600g pure cream
500g water, chilled

450g of lukewarm water
1 tablespoon dried instant yeast
100g olive oil
750g baker's flour
1 ½ teaspoons of salt

Garlic Butter:
1. Add garlic & parsley into Thermomix, chop 3 sec/speed 7. Scrape down the sides of a mixing bowl.
2. Attach butterfly whisk into Thermomix & pour in cream.
3. Whisk 1-3 min/speed 4, until butter forms (solids and liquids have separated).
4. Remove butterfly whisk and place in simmering basket. Using the simmering basket as a sieve, pour out liquid (butter milk and keep for another recipe!)
5. Remove simmering basket and re-insert butterfly whisk, add in cold water & mix 10 sec/speed 4 to rinse the butter. Repeat step 4.
6. Empty out butter and squeeze as much liquid out of it as possible.
