Dash of Nutmeg

Place all dry ingredients in a season grinder (or Coffee Bean Grinder) and blend for 15 – 20 seconds (optional, but highly recommended). Combine all dry ingredients with the room temperature butter and mix well. The best way to store it is in the refrigerator in a Tupperware dish or make a log form with saran wrap.
