One of our most beautiful herbal infusions, Meadow is also incredibly versatile in culinary applications such as this Meadow Butter due to the inherent apple like characteristics in our chamomile. These apple and honey notes are most often found in North African chamomile, unlike Eastern European chamomile which tends to carry notes of a hay or alfalfa. We find that Egypt grows the best chamomile in the world and are proud still be working with the same farmer our founder Steve Smith forged a relationship with many years ago.
Developed by chef Karl Holl, this recipe for Meadow Butter is delicious slathered on your favorite baguette and will surely be the star of your next dinner party.
