This exceptional, delectable butter is made from sweet cream and is cultured for 48 hours, creating a delicious, creamy, slightly tangy flavor, accented by large flake sea salt.
Store in the refrigerator. For immediate use, leave on the counter so that it spreads easily. Keep refrigerated and use by the best by date on the package, or freeze for later use.
Ploughgate Creamery has been crafting small-batch, cultured butter of the finest quality in Vermont since 2014.
Cultured butter is tangier and richer than your everyday stick butter, with a taste reminiscent of cheese. That’s because cultured butter and cheese share a critical first step – the addition of beneficial live bacteria (the ‘culture’ in cultured butter)
This is the butter to use on that special baked item or in cooking that special recipe. You will immediately notice the wonderful smell and texture as it melts or when you are cutting it into that pie crust or sweet dough.
The perfect combination of creamy sweetness with a hint of salt. Spread a bit on a crusty loaf of bread and enjoy!
So delicious on bread! It has just the right amount of salt. I highly recommend!
My palate clearly isn't as rarefied as some other reviewers' since I'm not sure I taste the difference between fancy butter and Costco or Trader Joe's organic butter, but I buy this all the time, and I do think it is lovely. I am motivated primarily by supporting regional agriculture and "local" farmers to keep our eco-system healthy. This salted butter is my favorite to spread on bread. I buy one block of butter from FTY each week, usually alternating salted and unsalted. I do also get commercial butter and always keep some extra on hand, but I bake often so maybe I use more butter than most?
This is the best butter we've ever had.
Oh, this butter! You may think you've had butter... but this butter is something else! I don't know how to describe it. Luscious. A touch of it on our morning toast, or in the pan with our fresh eggs, or melting over a baked potato... it is just heavenly.
One of our favorite items from Farmers to You. This butter is such a treat. We order it along with a fresh loaf of bread -- the perfect combo. As the description says, it is more like eating a fine cheese than regular butter. Delish!
