It’s that time of year again when the chives are in full bloom. Did you know that they are edible? They not only add a great flavour to salads and dishes, the lovely purple color will make your dish pop! This compound butter can go on anything; potatoes, veggies, toast, fish, chicken, and pasta just to name a few.
You don’t need many ingredients to make this mouth-watering butter. I used dairy free butter, but you can use any type of butter that you would like.
Chive Blossom Butter
This compound butter is good on almost anything
- 1 Cup Dairy Free Butter
- ¼ Cup Chives (chopped)
- 8 Chive Flowers (chopped)
- 1 Tbsp Lemon Zest
- 1 Clove Garlic
Whip the butter until it is smooth with a hand mixer.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix with a spatula until well blended.
Scoop into molds if desired, otherwise you can spread it on parchment paper and form it into a log.
