We had a butter tasting with some friends tonight. I know it sounds strange, but it was actually kind of fun. Brian got the idea from an episode of NPR's The Splendid Table.
I had no idea how different brands of butter were from one another. We tasted 4 types of salted butter:
- Hope Creamery
- Land 'O Lakes (Whipped)
- Plugra (European Style)
- Farmhouse Kitchen's (Handrolled)
We tasted each butter alone and on sourbread. It was also a blind taste test.
In the end, everyone else preferred the Farmhouse Kitchen butter that we got at Byerly's. I preferred the Hope Creamery butter.
