Butter is sometimes considered as a bit naughty, and this recipe is certainly that!
A real special occasion condiment, this bacon and maple Syrup butter is amazing spread on fresh bread, added to baked potatoes or tossed through steamed veggies.
Cook the bacon until crisp, and chop finely. Allow to cool.
Blend the butter in a food processor with the maple syrup, bacon and parsley until combined.
Roll out a sheet of baking parchment and spoon out the butter into a long sausage shape in the centre, leaving a 4 inch gap at the sides.
Roll up and twist the sides in so it resembles a large sweet.
Keep in the fridge for up to a week.
