|Black Locust Flower Butter|
Yub Yub loves to eat the flowers, picking them one by one from their clusters like grapes. We all love them in salads of every variety. We do cook with them, but we are careful not to cook them to long and lose the texture and fragrance.
This week I incorporated blossoms into several spreads, including...
- Locust Blossom Butter: Mix locust blossoms into softened butter--preferably a high quality, lightly salted butter
- Honey Lavender Locust Blossom Butter: Add honey and/or dried lavender blossoms to locust blossom butter
- Locust Blossom Cream Cheese: Mix locust blossoms and honey/maple syrup into cream cheese
- Locus Blossom Goat Cheese: roll a fresh goat cheese log in locust blossoms until thoroughly coated
