Edible Flowers and Butters~

Imagine my surprise.. when earlier in the day..Hélène had shown her apple crisp with caramelized ginger featuring this company....And.. then I went to show a home..and my adorable client gave me a jar of these!

!!

Oh I was so happy!
I had never seen this trademark before Hélène..perhaps in a magazine etc..but it was not a familiar label..

I looked at the make..then the label..and discovered..



I did not have to wait until I had a dish worthy of these as the finishing touch..I could simply make a flavored butter as I have in the past..but w/ a twist~



It's my very favorite now because it is prettier than the one I last made..I simply added a touch of the dried blooms..a touch of honey..and a touch of icing sugar..and then I had crackers and butter..:)

I love this brand..I am so happy to have discovered it~

This butter would be delicious on one of..Ann's scones~

  1. What a joy to find your site. There are a lot of food blogs with good photography but much fewer with exceptional photography. Yours is the latter! And also fantastic recipes!

    Thank You!

  6. I agree with Food With Style, that this would make a wonderful gift! Dare I try and dry my own or just look for this label?

  11. Mmm -- heavenly idea. I'm mulling over the flavors right now and could skip dinner if I had a little crock of this.

  12. Flavored butters are wonderful but I've not done them with flowers -- what a wonderful idea -- would make a good spread for tea.
