Chef John's Nasturtium Butter

Chef John

"If the thought of making a flavored butter with flowers from the backyard sounds kind of crazy, think again. Nasturtium petals have an interesting, but very subtle radish flavor that works perfectly in this colorful compound butter."

Tastes as good as it looks! I had 4 cups of flowers to use. I suggest letting the flowers dry off if you wash them just before you use them in this recipe.

I was really second-guessing the whole adding plants into my butter, but it turned out great! Thanks for the recipe P.S. add in some grass if you want a more nutty taste

I love the light, radish-y flavor of nasturtium in salad, so I was intrigued by this recipe when I saw it.
