I recently tried making nasturtium butter and was pleased with how easy it was. I tried it on roasted salmon and loved the subtle, delicious flavor–plus the melting flower bits looked so pretty on the meat.

This is also a great way to use up nasturtium from the garden. You know, these guys:

I followed the Food Wishes video, which you can see below.

How To Make Nasturtium Butter:

Ingredients:

    1 cup nasturtium flowers
    3 Tablespoons butter


Directions:

1. Pick a packed cup of flowers. Wash and dry thoroughly.

2. Remove the petals from the flowers and crush into a paste with a mortar and pestle.

3. Smoosh the paste into room-temperature butter.

4. Roll the butter into a sausage-shape in plastic wrap. Wrap and put the butter back in the fridge so it will harden.

To use, slice off a pat and use anytime you want to add fancy butter to something. Chicken, fish, and steak seem like they would all benefit from it.
