Chive Flower Flavoured Butter

This is an easy and great flavoured butter to lighten up your toast in the morning or on a charcuterie board to share with your love ones in the garden. 

You Will Need:

200 gr of slightly salted butter
A handful of chive flowers
Cling film
2 pieces of string 

How to Make It:

Leave butter at room temperature so it will be easy to mould.

Pick out a handful of chive flowers. Peel off all the flower petals from each of them. Mix them well together with the butter in a bowl. 

Spread the mix on top of the cling film (make sure it’s double layered in case of leaking/ bursting) and that there is no room for air inside the flavoured butter. Tie both ends using a little string. Please see pictures on how to fold them. 

Once you are done, place it into the fridge. Let it settle for around 2-4 hours until butter is firm.
