Serve these on SALTINES… This is a wonderful twist on one of my favorite childhood snacks- Butter on Saltines… only now we add Edible Flowers!
1/2 cup unsalted butter organic, room temperature… I personally PREFER President Butter from France- it’s delightful and delicious…
1 teaspoon flaky sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small lemon
1/2 cup edible flower petals assorted, petals only
1/4 cup fresh herbs assorted, leaves only, mild
Arrange Saltine Crackers- with a knife for speading…
- Using the back of a wooden spoon, smear the butter in a half-moon on a wooden cutting board, marble cheese board or platter. Really, anything works for presentation.
- Season the butter generously with the flaky salt and the fresh cracked pepper. Zest the lemon overtop the butter.
- Sprinkle on the flower petals and the fresh herb leaves, using as many or few as you like.
- Serve the butter with a Saltines (or a french bread or interesting crackers… I love the Saltines… hehehe!)
Everyone always asks me- about Eating flowers- Can I? What do they taste like? Where to get them?
All of that and more is answered in this blog… You can Eat Edible Flowers- as long as you know they are edible- have grown them yourself- and are aware what flowers are edible and which are not…
www.GourmetSweetBotanicals.com is my go-to for Edible Flowers- they have such a huge selection- and they describe them so thoroughly- so you know what you are getting- what they will taste like (some like the buzz buttons make your mouth go numb for few minutes… FUN)… and I even have a taste test video on uBloom.com- that shares many of the edible flowers from Gourmet Sweet Botanicals… you can check it out here!
Gourmet Sweet Botanicals ships right to your door.. it’s that easy- or look for edible flowers at your local grocer or specialty market- they are becoming more and more popular.
I love this recipe- and I like the Old School – take on using Butter and Soda Crackers- it makes me think of my childhood- and it updates that simple snack- with Edible Flowers- and President Butter of course… WHEEE!
