Fairy Butter

This month the boys and I are learning about all things fairies. Since we all like to cook together, I thought it would be fun to google what kinds of recipes we could find on fairies and make a project out of it. Many of the recipes I found contained all kinds of processed items but I did stumble across a recipe for fairy butter. The original recipe can be found here.

The original recipe sounds delish but I did not have any orange flower water and I was a little unclear on some of the directions so I improvised. ;) I just mixed together:
  • 2 yokes of hard boiled eggs (mashed to a fine powder)
  • 1 tablespoon of water (took 1/4 cup of water and added a drop of sweet orange essential oil)
  • 2 tablespoons of powder sugar
  • Added about 5 tablespoons of your favorite butter (we did shatto) or churn your own
Spread on some fresh homemade bread. We use a 5 minute artisan bread recipe found here.

Final product was a great sweet early morning snack served under a tree observing our fairy gardens for movement. Of course we had to leave some for them too. ;)

  1. Baby girl would love fairy butter I am sure. We'll have to give that a try! Believe it or not we actually have orange flower water, although I can't remember why my husband bought it now.
