In a small saucepan, combine the ginger, sugar and water. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook until tender, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a blender and purée until smooth. Strain through a medium sieve.

With a mixer, in a small bowl, mix the butter until light. Add the ginger purée and maple syrup, mixing well. This can be made 3 days in advance and stored, covered, in the refrigerator.
