  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • cracked black pepper

Instructions

  • Finely chop the shallot and place them in a pan with the red wine.

  • Place the butter, parsley and a grind of pepper into the food processor and whizz.
  • Add in the red wine shallots and pulse until everything is combined and a fabulous colour.
  • Lay a large strip of cling film out on the bench , spoon the butter into a rough log onto the long edge of the cling film. (It will take up the centre 3rd of the the cling film.
  • Carefully roll the cling film around the butter, then pinch the ends together and keep rolling it tight until you have a nice tight log.
  • Tie a quick knot in the ends of the cling film and store it in the fridge.
