I just love the chive flowers when they appear! Maybe it’s because they’re purple and purple flowers are my favorite. Or maybe it’s because they’re one of the few edible blooms that I grow. I’m not sure why I love chive blossoms so much, but I do know that as soon as I see them opening I get a sense of urgency to use them all and quickly!
I have been making chive blossom vinegar for a few years now but this was my first time using chive blossoms to make a compound butter. It’s very simple to make and only uses a few ingredients, but it is heavenly on fresh bread! The chive blossoms add just a hint of chive flavor.
