Blue Lotus and Lavender Butter

Blue lotus and lavender butter is a delicious floral addition to breakfast or brunch. Once made, this butter will keep in the fridge for several days, or several months in the freezer.

If you would like to make this vegan, omit the honey and swap out the butter for Earth Balance or a similar product.

To make this, you will need the following ingredients.

2 tbsp blue lotus

1 tbsp lavender petals

½ tsp salt

1 tsp honey

1/2 tsp salt

½ lb unsalted butter, softened

With a coffee or spice grinder, grind the lavender and lotus into powder. Put butter in a medium sized bowl, and whisk together all ingredients until evenly combined, including the now-ground lavender and lotus flowers.

Scoop butter mixture into a sheet of parchment paper and roll into a 1 inch thick log. Place in fridge until it has hardened, and slice medallions from your log of butter as needed. Store in a sealed container, either in the fridge, or frozen to extend shelf life.
