2 tsp (10 ml) flaky sea salt
1 tsp (5 ml) lemon zest
2 tbsp (30 ml) fresh chives, chopped

2 tbsp (30 ml) edible flowers, dried or fresh

- In a medium bowl, mash butter with a spoon until it is the consistency of peanut butter but not melted. Transfer softened butter into a couple of piping bags fitted with different shaped and sized star piping tips. Pipe rosettes of butter onto cutting board. Alternatively, thickly spread butter onto cutting board and use a knife or back of a spoon to add swirls, peaks and valleys in butter.
- Liberally sprinkle flaky sea salt and lemon zest over butter.
- In a small bowl, gently toss together chives, mint, tarragon and edible flowers until well combined. Sprinkle over butter before drizzling wildflower honey over top of everything.
- Serve alongside warm slices of baguette for dipping.
