This butter is good to have on hand for coloring hot sauces green. (Plain chlorophyll can be used for cold sauces.) Work chlorophyll into butter until you get the color you’re looking for. Typically, a tablespoon of chlorophyll colors 4 ounces (120 grams) butter, although you may want to adjust the amounts according to the exact shade you’re looking for.
