Last week at the market at Lloyd Craft Farms we brought along 6 different kinds of flavored butter. We had a lot of requests for the recipes so here they are, enjoy!
These recipes were inspired by one of the walks Kris took in Switzerland. They spent a rainy cold morning on the beautiful Bettmeralp walking with a regional herbalist, Lisa. They had lessons with Lisa, then gathered their own wild alpine edible and medicinal herbs and met her at the bottom of the climb. From there they made their own salve from the herbs they had collected. About the time they finished the fog lifted and rain stopped and they could really see how absolutely beautiful Bettmeralp is. Lisa owns a restaurant in the town of Bettmeralp that is open in the winter for the skiing visitors and for special classes in the summer months so they got to enjoy a wonderful meal that she and her mother had prepared. A delightful spread with fresh cheese seasoned with the alpine edible flowers and the baskets of bread were served with yarrow butter. One of Kris' favorite days that she wanted to share with all of you. Kris didn’t have fresh yarrow but came up with the recipes above with things she did have. She will try from time to time to make special logs of butter, but in the mean time we hope you will try some of these recipes on your own with Diamond S butter and herbs of your choice and taste from the Craft Farm garden.
