Step 1

Add all ingredients to a 3-quart pot/saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and cook until thick, stirring occasionally. (There should be almost no liquid left. This may take from 45 to 60 minutes.)

Cool the monkey butter before filling and sealing in small glass jars, then refrigerate.
