I recently tried making nasturtium butter and was pleased with how easy it was. I tried it on roasted salmon and loved the subtle, delicious flavor–plus the melting flower bits looked so pretty on the meat.
This is also a great way to use up nasturtium from the garden. You know, these guys:

How To Make Nasturtium Butter:
1 cup nasturtium flowers
3 Tablespoons butter
1. Pick a packed cup of flowers. Wash and dry thoroughly.
2. Remove the petals from the flowers and crush into a paste with a mortar and pestle.
3. Smoosh the paste into room-temperature butter.
4. Roll the butter into a sausage-shape in plastic wrap. Wrap and put the butter back in the fridge so it will harden.
To use, slice off a pat and use anytime you want to add fancy butter to something. Chicken, fish, and steak seem like they would all benefit from it.
