Kastinys recipe (Lunch)
Float an earthenware bowl in a hot water bath, add butter and 1 tablespoon of sour cream at a time. Blend with wooden spoon until sour cream has been added and a white, solid mass is formed. Then add caraway seed and a pinch of salt. Blend the last 2 ingredients well. Place kastinys into small bowls and refrigerate 2-3 hours.
Kastinys is somewhat salty, with a delicate sourness. Its taste depends on the seasonings used (mint, allspice, garlic, poppy seed and onion greens).
Sour cream butter is served with hot boiled potatoes, black bread and cake.
