Yield: 1 servings
|1 \N||Dried ancho chile|
|\N \N||Or any other dried pepper|
|1 pounds||Unsalted butter; room temperature|
Break apart the dried pepper, remove seeds, and stem. Transfer the pepper to a spice grinder or a mortar and pestle, and grind to a fine powder.
There should be 2 tablespoons powder. Place the butter in medium bowl. Use a rubber spatula to smooth butter into a paste. Stir in the ground chile pepper until evenly distributed. Divide evenly between two pieces of parchment paper. Wrap in the parchment, forming an even cylinder; tie ends, and label. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill. To use, unwrap paper, and slice off pieces of butter. Will keep refrigerated 2 weeks or frozen up to 1 month. Makes two 8½ by 1 ½ inch logs.
