In another thread, someone suggested to buy Kerrygold butter... I bought some and good lord is it delicious. I had to stop myself from busting out a spoon.
What are your favorite ways to eat/cook with/whatever butter?
I can't help but feel guilty eating it, even though I know it's ok to eat now.
Yeah, to cook with and to melt over cooked vegetables.
Sometimes I just eat pieces of it. In mediaeval and early modern Ireland, people apparently used to eat balls of butter, sometimes rolled in oatmeal. Butter's become regarded mostly as something you spread on bread, but who needs the bread to eat it?
I haven't yet tried putting it in my tea, like the Tibetans and Mongolians do.
I eat it...lol Someone here on MDA mentioned eating a slice of butter with a bit of dark chocolate- the evilness! It is soo damn good...mmmm
Kerrygold butter- is this a brand name? Is it available in grocery stores ?
Thickly spread over a freshly toasted, thick slice of white bread... Haha, just kidding (but lordy I do miss that!)
My favourite ways to eat butter are: melted with some very thin slices of garlic tossed through and thrown over vegetables, mashed up with fresh herbs and celtic sea salt and refridgerated into little medallions, top a grilled rib-eye steak, chicken breast, lamb chop, etc. with a medallion just before serving.
I also use it as an ingredient in my home-made larabars. If you keep them in the fridge it keeps them nice and firm.
Kerrygold is the brand name and yes, it is available at grocery stores. Around here Kerrygold butters are with the gourmet cheeses and not with the other butters. Don't know why. Trader Joe's also carries Kerrygold butter.
We get grass fed butter from a local dairy...yuuuuuuum. I love it in eggs or sauteed mushrooms. When in doubt, add butter.

I'm not in the U.S., but as far as I can tell, butter from grass-fed animals has become so rare over there that people there who want that have to buy butter that's been shipped all the way across the Atlantic. Makes you think. Presumably there are some small farmers out in the sticks still churning out good quality butter, but evidently it's not widely available.
