Mash together the butter, honey, ketchup, garlic and some seasoning, beating until quite smooth. At this point, if you are also cooking for children, split the mix into two serving bowls, before stirring the harissa into just one bowl. Add a pastry brush to each butter mix.

Pile onto plates and let everyone butter their own.
