Honey-Jalapeño Butter

Cuisinart original

The combination of sweet and hot is executed perfectly in this compound butter. Excellent on our savory Spicy Cornmeal Waffles, but we also find that it is a great way to dress up the plain varieties as well.

8     tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted, GOOD
       quality butter, room temperature,cut into 1-inch pieces

1. Put the jalapeño into the work bowl of
a mini chopper fitted with the chopping
blade, or food processor. Process until
finely chopped. Scrape down sides of the
bowl and add the remaining ingredients.
Process until combined, about 30 seconds,
stopping to scrape down as needed.
2. Remove butter from the bowl and place on
a sheet of waxed paper. With the aid of the
paper, form the butter into a log. Roll and
wrap well in plastic wrap. Butter can either
be refrigerated, if using within 2 weeks,
or frozen up to 1 month.
