Aromatic Blossom Butter
- 1/2 C. (1 stick) unsalted butter
- (at room temperature)
- 1/4 C. aromatic petals, such as rose, violet, pinks, herb flowers and other safe-to-eat seasonal flowers
- 1/4 C. or to taste, sweet marjoram, sweet basil, thyme or dill (optional)
Mix butter, petals and marjoram, basil, thyme or dill, if using, until well combined. Spread butter mixture to about 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick on flat plate, if cutting into shapes with small cookie cutter. Or mold into small serving container or butter molds. Place in refrigerator to harden. Leave in cool place overnight to allow fragrance to permeate butter. Serve on crackers or bread. Makes a scant cup.
