Honey Jalapeno Butter

Cuisinart original

While we love this butter spread on warm cornbread, it’s also great atop a piece of grilled chicken.

¼     jalapeño, seeded and halved
8      tablespoons (1 stick) good-quality unsalted
        butter, room temperature, cut into
        1-inch pieces

1. Put the jalapeño in the work bowl. Pulse on Chop
and then process continuously on Chop until fine
and evenly chopped. Scrape down the sides of the
bowl and add the butter, honey, and salt. Process
continuously, alternating between Chop and Grind,
until combined, about 30 seconds, stopping to scrape
down the bowl as needed.
2. Transfer the butter to a sheet of waxed paper. With the
aid of the paper, form the butter into a log. Roll and
wrap well in plastic wrap. Store in the refrigerator for up
to 2 weeks or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
