Horseradish Shallot Butter

Cuisinart original

Fresh horseradish is best for this sharp-tasting butter, but if that is unavailable, jarred may be used, just be sure to squeeze out all the liquid.


Yield: about 12 tablespoons (6 ounces)


1     2-inch piece fresh horseradish, peeled*
½    small shallot, cut into 1-inch pieces
1     tablespoon fresh Italian (flat-leaf)
8     tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter,
       room temperature
1     to 2 pinches kosher salt
       pinch freshly ground black pepper
