Lavender Butter

I had a friend who was kind enough to bring me in some of her lavender from her garden the other day. She wasn't sure what to do with it so i found some recipes. Lavender is a an interesting herb to cook with. Most often you find recipes that say you can replace rosemary with lavender. Most recipes call for you to use the flower part of the lavender verses the actual leaf of the lavender, so here are a couple of the recipes that I made.

1 stick softened butter, salted
1 tsp fresh lavender, crushed (i used just the flower)
1 tbsp honey

Mix the ingredients thoroughly together with a wisk until light and fluffy and wrap with waxed paper. Store in the refrigerator until hard. I made her a lavender, rosemary, parmesan bread that was just fantastic with the butter.
