Butter Bullion


Save the expensive imported and “European-style” butters for very special occasions, particularly when you will be eating the butter fresh, not in a baked ingredient – for example, spread on a fresh crusty baguette or used for dipping lobster. For regular baking and everyday use, pick a “regular” butter that suits your taste, and put the savings towards something else – like imported Parmesan cheese, where you really can taste the difference. Also keep in mind that expensive imported butters sometimes don’t sell as quickly, so be sure to check the “use by” date if you do buy it.
