Orange Honey Lavender Butter

ingredients
all
1 Tbs dried lavender
1 stick unsalted butter
softened
orange zest
from 1 medium orange
2 Tbs light honey
locally sourced
1 pinch sea salt
Just a little bold, fragrant lavender goes a long way in this bright, citrus-scented butter. Spread a dollop on a muffin or biscuit, or stir a little into a stew or marinade to add a taste of springtime.
1
Pulse lavender in a spice grinder several times, until no large fragments remain, but it has not turned into a powder.
2
Stir all ingredients together in a bowl. Taste and adjust flavors as needed.
3
Transfer butter to a 12-ounce jar and store in refrigerator. Alternatively, form a log with butter, and store in parchment paper.
4
Can be stored in refrigerator for several weeks.
