• Butter

Excited to find a new product from one of our local producers.  Locally produced farm butter loaded with crystals of salt – delicious. I have a particular weakness for butter so try and avoid it most of the time or it could easily get out of hand.  This is just amazing – it glistens and is creamy and rich and the salt crystals melt on your tongue.  Served a  little with some white asparagus last night as an entrée. Sometimes the simplest things give the most pleasure.  It reminds me of the butter we used to have when I was a little girl.  My grandmother used to buy farm butter from the market every week and my father has the same weakness for it so I blame him for my addiction.

Creamy, rich and salty farm butter from just down the road.

    Love it! I persuade myself I use less because the taste is so much better! Here’s a link to Beurre a la Baratte.

    Worth searching out when in France – or anywhere for that matter.

    Thanks for the link Jean. I’ll have to hide this from Charlie – it seems the family weakness has been passed down the line!
