Kerrygold butter...
Posted by: RAMd®d

...is delicious!

And it's softer in the 'fridge than my previous staple, Challenge Whipped Butter.

I'll order a butter dish from AMZ and keep a 'flat' out, and the rest chillin'.

I had a couple of slices of toast and loved them.

Then it was toast, Kg, and jam.

While very good, it jam sort of interfered with the butter.

So now maybe it'll be one slice buttered and jammed (or jellied) and one with just buttery goodness.

So thank you MRFers for the recommendation.

Maybe I'll try the Kirkland at some point, but I'm very happy with Kerrygold.

I found Kerry Gold years ago in a warehouse club. It's the BEST butter available!

It was so popular that people in Wisconsin did trips to Costco's in neighboring states to buy it as Wisconsin, at the time, didn't allow any dairy products that weren't USDA approved to be sold there.

I believe that has been changed, and it can now be purchased there.

I seen it at Costco but never gave it a shot. Most of our butter use is in baking, do you think it would make a difference there?

I like it as well. Also, butter should be kept outside the fridge.

I've been buying it for years, along with their cheeses. I'm just surprised that a dairy in a country the size of Ireland can keep pace with demand and selling their products at Costco.

We'll need a Paul F. ruling on that...

You could say the same about their whiskey

I guess, but if you're drinking whiskey at the same rate as eating cheese and butter and dairy...

Btw, Costco had Kerrygold cheese slices on clearance at my local a couple weeks back - good deal. Their Dubliner cheese has been a mainstay on our table for many years. It's in the cheddar style but about half the price

We buy the Organic Valley cultured pasture butter. I think it’s along the same veins of the Kerrygold grass fed butter. Having said that, these grass fed butters are noticeably more tasty as well as much better for your heart health.

We also buy both brands grass fed cheddars....absolutely some of the best out there (as far as the mainstream stuff goes).

It isn't exactly a single dairy. The milk to make Kerrygold products is sourced from a dairy co-op of over 14,000 family farms.

I know that. Same with most "dairies." We have Cabot farms, as a local dairy but it's a co-op.

Oh goodie, let's make a joke of a rape of a young woman.

Because, it wasn't 'real'.




Kerrygold is such an improvement, I'm now looking for a butter dish so I can leave it on the counter.

The porcelain/wood varieties look great but get low marks for the wood (usually bamboo) going wrong in various ways.

I'll compromise and probably put it in the fridge at night, and put it out on the counter in the morning.

Once I establish portion control, a stick may last a longer time, at least than it does now.

As much as I hate to waste food, I tried the Kg before finishing the last quarter of a tub of Challenge stuff, and tossed the remainder of the tub.

It was reduced to tasting like a pale imitation of a butter-like substance next to the Kg.

No, I've just read her accountings of Brando's 'performance', and how she felt about it.

Now you're just trying to hurt my feelings.

Huh.

This coming from someone who makes some of the lamest comments on the forum...

Over and over and over and over and...

Well, you get the idea.

I may talk about butter again, if the spirit moves me.

You are always welcome to not click.

RAMmie? One of the meanest people on the forum? Are you sure you don't have him confused with me?

(BTW, my first thought on the matter ran parallel to his.)



It is what it is.
