Spring Floral spiced butter recipe


  • Unsalted butter at room temperature
  • Beetroot Maldon Salt (Or any flaked or flavoured salt)
  • Dried Chilli Flakes
  • Cracked dried Coriander Seeds
  • Ground Pepper Corns
  • Edible Flowers or Leaves (I used baby Nasturtium leaves and marigolds – feel free to use violas, borage, chamomile, pansy, arugula – to name a few. If you are not 100% sure that they are edible it is best to purchase some at Woolworths.)

How to make the floral spiced butter

  1. Spread the unsalted butter on a flat surface approximately 1 cm in thickness.
  2. Sprinkle the salt, coriander and chili flakes on the buttery surface.
  3. Add your edible flowers to the mixture.
  4. Provide a butter knife and allow guests to spread the flavoured butter on their fresh bread or crackers.

Other possible flavours that you can play around with to flavour your flower butter include – adding garlic flakes, capers, salted olives, lemon zest, mint and much more – let your imagination run wild!
