Instructions
 

  • Lay a rectangular piece of baking paper on a flat work surface. Scatter the middle with half of the edible flowers and prepared herbs - this step will help make your herb butter look nice.
  • In a large bowl mix softened butter and salt with remaining flowers and herbs until well combined.
  • Use a spatula to smear the butter onto the prepared baking paper then carefully roll it up until you have a cylindrical herb butter roulade. Pop in the fridge to solidify.

Notes

Serve alongside some dipping oils and beautiful bread for a classy starter.
Tips: *Use sage sparingly as the flavour is intense.
