Maple butter can be made two ways..with a candy thermometer and boiling syrup or with a mixer. I went with the mixer which is a somewhat simpler method. The result was a fluffy, whipped butter with a strong maple flavor. Use real maple syrup, not the artificial stuff. This butter is perfect as a spread on breads, scones, or muffins.
(Makes about 3/4 cup)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- pinch salt
- Combine butter and maple syrup in a bowl.
- Mix with an electric mixer on high until fluffy, about 7 minutes.
