Butter is a luxurious and versatile ingredient. So much more than the sum of its parts: its full-bodied flavor and velvety texture add depth, richness, and indulgence to countless dishes, both savory and sweet.

More About Butter

One of our most ancient ingredients butter has a history as rich as its taste. Dating back thousands of years, the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans all practiced making this tasty food. From churning it by hand to today’s advanced methods, butter is a foundational element in almost every culture’s culinary heritage.

Butter's versatility in the kitchen knows no bounds. From its crucial role in baking, lending tenderness and flakiness to pastries, to its transformative powers in sautéing, enhancing flavors and creating sumptuous sauces, butter elevates every dish it touches, be it savory or sweet.

Pricing

While you can acquire butter at almost any convenience store, it bears repeating that not all brands are created equal. A commercially produced pound may set you back two to four dollars, but really exceptional artisanal varieties can run as high as twenty dollars a pound. Those new to the world of premium goods may baulk at such numbers but remember, this price reflects much more than an average pound of fat. Prepared using time-honored traditional techniques, the craftsmanship and quality of such products knows no equal. The higher price reflects the attention to detail, small-scale production, and often the use of premium ingredients that contribute to the unique characteristics of a gourmet product.

Butter Questions And Answers

Q:Can I Freeze Butter?
A:Yes. In fact, freezing can help extend its shelf life, allowing you to keep it on hand, ready to be featured in all your favorite dishes. To freeze: wrap it tightly in celophane or foil, place it in a freezer bag, and store for up to six months.
Q:Why is Butter Yellow?
A:Butter gets its iconic yellow color from beta-carotene, a natural pigment found in grass and other flora. The more grass a cow consumes, the deeper the color becomes.
Q:What is the Average Cost of Butter?
A:The average price can vary depending on brand, location, and grade. Artisan varieties can reach heights of $20 per pound, while generic commercially produced types hover in the range of $2-4. As with any product the quality is closely correlated to cost.
