I always liked Brummel and Brown margarine with yogurt.

In the words of Chef Fernand Point, arguably the father of modern French cuisine,  “Butter. Give me butter! Always butter!”

In the mid-'70's, way before the Health Nazis determined that transfats are deadly, I switched to butter as soon as I could afford it.

Soft real & delicious butter is simple in a KitchenAid.

Cream whipped whipped whipped past the whipped cream stage & you have fresh soft butter & bonus fresh buttermilk.

I have always bought salted slightly butter. I noticed that many recipes call for unsalted. There is not very much salt in the butter I buy. Does it affect the end product?

6 years late.  I understand a small amount of salt added to butter considerably extends its shelf life. Unsalted butter is going to be fresher.

I have always used butter.  Never bought a tub or stick of margarine in my life.  We don't eat "bread and butter" with dinner and we rarely have toast or English muffins........so our butter intake is pretty minimal.  I love it on summer sweet corn!

I pretty much just use Olivio. It's relatively inexpensive and I like the flavor.

No retailers listed in AZ
Bummer!

Last night, channel 5 Boston did a show on Vermont. One segment was about a lady who has Jersey cows and makes butter. She sells to high end restaurants via Fed Ex. Her 1st customer was French Laundry all the way in Ca. The Fed Ex cost alone, must be more than most of us pay for butter. The butter is SO yellow as to look fake, and looks to require a lot of hand labor. Successful high end restaurant owners must see a reason to buy it. She sells all that she can make. She is limited by a herd that is small enough for her to take care of by herself, with a little help from her vet husband. (At least she has access to a large animal vet.......they are in short supply)
 
Kerry Gold from Ireland, President from France, and Kate's from Maine are local high end supermarket brands. I don't know what makes better butter "better", but it is.

Lately, we've been using Kerry Gold soft Irish butter that comes in 1# tub. Sam's Club has it for a decent price and it is just oh, so good! Nice, rich and yellow, (unlike most nearly white butters from the US). Made from milk from grass fed cows. This really cannot be beat!

For about a year we have been buying Amish butter.  The color depends on the time of the year.......very yellow in summer and pale in winter.  It's kind of pricey, $12.99/lb. but it's worth it.  For cooking and baking I use regular butter but for spreading on baguette or corn on the cob, where you can actually taste the butter, it's definitely much better and therefore, worth the money, for us, anyway.

Wow--the way I go through butter, I'd be broke at $12.99/lb!  I'm griping about it now at $3.99 at Trader Joe's.   Would love to try Amish butter some day, though.  (Maybe that's why their pastries are so awesome!)

Butter. Since I found out that margarine is only one molecule away from being plastic, I have never looked back.

One of the Emperors of France (Napoleon III I think) offered a prize to anyone who could come up with an alternative for butter to feed the "armed forces and the lower classes".  So, some French chemist came up with margarine.  It was nasty.  The French had a Revolution.  And they all returned to butter.  End of story.
