Ham and Sage Butter

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. It is not necessary to cook the ham as this recipe states, but it does remove some of the fat and adds a crispy texture to the blend. You choose!

4 ounces thinly sliced smoked ham
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh sage
1 tablespoon maple syrup

Cook ham in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp; drain on paper towels. Coarsely chop ham to measure about 1/2 cup. In food processor combine ham, butter, sage, and syrup. Process until blended, stopping once to scrape down sides.
Spoon butter into a small crock or other container. Cover and chill up to 2 days. Serve with grits, cornbread, green beans and other vegetables, biscuits, or scones. Yield 1 1/4 cups.
