  • 1 c unsalted butter (or make your own from 1 qt heavy cream)
  • 3 tbs dried minced onion
  • 2 tbs white sesame seeds
  • 1 tbs black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbs poppy seeds
  • 1 tbs onion powder
  • 1.5 tsp kosher salt


  1. To churn your own butter, whip 1 qt heavy cream 5-7 minutes as you would for whipped cream, continuing another 6-8 minutes until it separates into butter and buttermilk. This produces about 1 c butter + 2 c buttermilk.

  2. With butter at room temperator, mix in the remaining ingredients.


  1. I haven't tried making butter (although I've had a couple accidents with whipped cream that were clearly getting there).
