Cultured Salted Butter

Cultured Salted Butter

June 5th, 2017—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed. 

While invaluable in sautéing and baking, butter – really great butter – stands on its own. So what makes really great butter? It starts with really great cream, and a little culture never hurt, either. We’re not talking about a night at the opera, but about the cherished micro-organisms, also found in yogurt and crème fraîche, that unleash depth and exquisite tartness in cream. Beyond the enviable culture-elicited flavor, butter is bettered when churned and churned and churned and…Lengthier churning lowers the moisture content, increasing the butterfat, and resulting in luxuriously creamy texture. 

Produced for us in Brittany, in the heart of French dairy country, our Cultured Salted Butter is really great. Lightly salted, pleasantly tart, enviably creamy, it serves as a beautiful spread on any bread (soften before spreading, of course) – it’s particularly appropriate on slathered onto a hunk of baguette. When it comes to baking – pie crusts, cookies, cakes – there is no better butter. If you’re a baker, you’ve been waiting for this butter to come into your life.

If you’re any kind of butter lover, this is also the value you’ve been waiting for. Elsewhere, you could expect to pay close to $5 for butter with this pedigree. We’re selling Trader Jacques’ Cultured Salted Butter Produced in Brittany, France in an 8.8 ounce package (a single block) for $2.99, every day. You’ll find it in our dairy case.
