  • Very excited about this Irish butter, from grass-fed cows

    From Green to Gold

    Just bought this today, looking forward to using it! I may melt a little bit and do a taste test against regular butter.

    I think it tastes best when it's very slightly softened after coming out of the fridge. Looooove to put this stuff on little biscuits or heels of bread loafs... yeah, not gonna pretend I think there's a more delicious way to eat it. It's great on its own though. On meat or veggies, I don't think there's a huge taste difference between Kand regular crap butter.

      I love Kerrygold. It's awesome! But, newsflash, dude, it's made in Texas :P

        How do you know that? I know it's packed in Evanston, IL, but they claim their products are made in Ireland. I don't think they can say that if it's not true.

          They say they're imported... I've never read anything that suggested it was made anywhere but Ireland.

            Oh reeeeaaaaally. Please tell me that butter makes it to Canada. I mean, we have a larger Irish population than Ireland, so it should.
            In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

              I hated butter until I tried this kind. I'd love to try butter made fresh from raw cream, but this is what I'll have to settle for.

                oh yeah, kerrygold rocks. it will have a different taste, if for no other reason than the fact that it has a higher butterfat content. most butter is around 76%, and iirc kerrygold is in the mid-80s. their Blarney Castle cheese is also quite delicious.

                  So far as I can see, the products come from cows in Ireland. If they are pastured, I wonder why the co. doesn't promote the fact. Perhaps not 100% pastured.

                    Pastured = grass-fed?

                      Unfortunately Ireland just allowed GMO crops into the country, so buy as much as you can and freeze it. I love the stuff, too, and Costco just had it on sale like they always do around St. Patrick's Day.

                        They do, at least on the german website: "Durch den warmen Golfstrom können sich die Kühe in Irland das ganze Jahr über saftiges Weidegras schmecken lassen."
                        I also read it somewhere else. They are 100% pastured (grass-fed).

                          "Cheese and butter made from grass fed (not grain fed) cows."

                          I love their Garlic & Herb butter. Delicious! I just wish they would make larger sizes.

                            Yes, the US web site also states: The winds, the rain, and the warming influence of the Gulf Stream all contribute to the year-round lushness of our homeland. It also contributes to the year-round diet of our grass fed cows who in turn produce the sweetest, richest milk in the world.

                              I've only found a couple different Kerrygold cheeses so far - not the butter.
