“There’s sweet cream butter and cultured butter. They require different types of handling. All the cream no matter what needs to come from really good milk.”
“Usually when people make butter in the kitchen, it’s by accident. They’re usually trying to whip cream.”
“Sadly the best indicator of quality in butter is probably price.”
