Chili, Lime, & Honey Compound Butter


Chili, Lime, & Honey Compound Butter

There are few things in life that make me as happy as butter.  I love the richness & smoothness of it and also love how it can be used on so many things from breads to vegetables, sauces, starches, grains, meats, and seafoods.  Compound butter is butter that is mixed with other ingredients, like herbs, shallots, vinegars, garlic, spices, etc…  This particular compound butter recipe is excellent on Corn on the Cob.

  • Method: No Cooking Involved

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


  • Allow butter to soften at room temperature.  When soft add all ingredients to a bowl and mix (by hand or food processor) to incorporate.  Lay out a piece of parchment paper and form a log.  Tightly roll and twist to seal.  There may be some excess lime juice that won’t incorporate.  Don’t worry about it, but put the log on a plate so it doesn’t spill on your refrigerator.
  • Refrigerate for ~ 2 hours before using or freeze until ready to use.  Happy buttery goodness!  Beckie
