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.
The predatory Nasturtium is considered a pest by many gardeners, so not only will you be creating a colorful and unique sauce, you'll be helping out a neighbor by taking some of these vibrantly colored villains off their hands.
Nasturtium butter sure looks sexy, slowly melting over grilled fish, chicken, or vegetables. By the way, some of you fellas may want to take note; anecdotal evidence shows this to be a great idea the next time you're cooking for date night. Enjoy!
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup nasturtium flower petals, washed and patted dry
