  • 4 teaspoons lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons minced chipotle in adobe sauce
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ITALIAN BUTTER
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • ½ teaspoon fresh chopped basil
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • salt to taste

  • ½ cup butter softened
  • ⅓ cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • dash lemon juice
  • ORANGE BUTTER
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • ½ cup orange marmalade
Instructions
  1. CHIPOTLE BUTTER
  2. In a small bowl, mix softened butter and 2 teaspoons chipotle peppers (with seeds removed). Mix well. Add lime zest, lime juice, and the remaining 2 teaspoons chipotle in adobe sauce. Add salt to taste. Roll into a log, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate until firm. When ready to give, cut into disks and package in an attractive container.
  3. ITALIAN BUTTER
  4. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients until thoroughly blended. Roll into a log, wrap in plastic, and refrigerate until firm. When ready to give, cut into disks and package in an attractive container.

  7. ORANGE BUTTER
  8. In a small bowl, mix both ingredients well. Transfer to an attractive container and refrigerate.
