Flavored Butters

Flavored Butters

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the yummy holiday treats.  If you are on Pinterest or Facebook or read many blogs you are probably about on overload right now with yummy, delicious sweet treats.  Every one is sharing their favorite holiday treats.  Most of them full of sugar – myself included!!

For those of you who might be looking for a holiday treat to give to friends and neighbors that isn’t sweet I’ve got a treat idea for you today.  Flavored Butters.

I love butter and eat bread so that I can eat butter.  Margarine was never allowed at my house growing up (and it was the sixties and seventies when margarine was totally in!)  My dad was a butter man.  So I learned at a young age to appreciate the fine flavor of butter.  No generic butter at our house.  We buy the good stuff.  My butter of choice is Darigold not only is it made here in the Northwest but it is just good butter!  There is a difference in butter.  A good quality butter will give you better results and flavor in cooking and baking.  You get a higher melting point and a better quality to your baked goods.  Darigold uses a European vacuum style churn to create a high quality better butter.
