Bone Marrow Butter

As I have been expanding my cooking skills through the Chef Ramsay Master Class, one of the lessons called for learning to use cheap or cuts of meat that are not frequently used, and through this, I have come across one of my new all-time favorite garnishes for meat and toppings for bread. Bone Marrow Butter! It has a flavor that you truly have to taste to believe and it is so easy to make. The concept of eating bone marrow may not be overly appealing to most, but regardless of your thoughts, you have to try it!
