Method: 
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl with black pepper to taste. Beat lightly with a fork. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes to let the flavors meld. Place on a piece of plastic wrap and form into a log, twisting the ends to seal. Or, place in a resealable jar. Chill in refrigerator until firm. Butter can be covered tightly and refrigerated for up to a week. Slice pats of chilled butter and serve over dishes as desired.
