Hey butter, butter, butter. Heeeeeeeey, butter!
Sorry. That has been stuck I my head ever since I made this butter and I really had to get it out.
Have you ever had fancy cultured butter? It’s rich and creamy but has a mysterious tang that is both indescribable and slightly addicting.
Cultured butter, true cultured butter, can be difficult and costly to make so this easy fake cultured butter is perfect, it really takes no effort and is delicious smothered on pretty much anything. Yes, anything. Spread on a slice of our keto bread, sirloin steak, add to your morning scrambled eggs, or roasted vegetables. Enjoy!
Fun facts: The earliest butter was made from goat and sheep's milk thousands of years ago, way before cows have been domesticated. Back then butter was usually clarified (milk solids removed) which helped preserve it for longer. Clarified butter, also known as ghee has been around for over three thousand years and has been utilised in Ayurveda as a therapeutic agent. Butter as we know it hasn't always been easy to make and required more than an hour to prepare. Have you seen how butter was made the Victorian way in the 1880s? Here's a video from National Heritage that's worth watching. If you have a spare 8 minutes, it's really entertaining and educational.😉
