Brown Sugar Butter

Simon recommends that you keep a batch of flavoured butter on standby in the fridge or freezer throughout the winter, should a craving strike.

1 lb. brown sugar
1/2 lb. unsalted butter
2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
2 tsp vanilla extract

  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Transfer to a storage dish and let it "steep" for at least 48 hours.
