Meet my butter bell’s new best friend.
I love the Pamplie butter, but at the rate we were blowing through it — at $4.39 for 8 ounces — our butter tab was starting to get a little steep. So, I put this butter in last week’s FreshDirect order:
While the Pamplie butter is creamy and rich, almost to the point of being like a cheese, this Lurpak is lighter and more, well, buttery. The “slightly salted” label is somewhat of a misnomer, though — it’s actually quite salty, saltier than the Pamplie. But at a mere $3.09 for 8 ounces, I can live with that.
Maybe I’ll save the Pamplie for when I start baking bread more often. Or maybe, as I confessed to Lisa the other day, maybe I’ll get another butter bell and have one for Pamplie butter and one for everyday making-some-grilled-cheese butter…
I found some Danish butter last year with specks of sea salt, used it to bake blondies and almost died – not to be too dramatic, of course – from how good it was. Sweet, delicious cookies with a loud butter taste and little flakes of salt crunch. It’s the stuff to build dreams on.
Fancy! I wish we had a bigger butter budget!
Hell, I wish *I* had bigger butter budget. Although I suspect a bigger butter bugdet would lead to a bigger pants budget as well.
What do you call it when you spend more than your increased allotment for butter?
A bigger butter budget blunder.
Hi… I’ve had a mailbox crash and have lost your e-mail address. Could you e-mail me and we can discuss an item of possible interest to you?
I’m hesitating about whether or not to check these out. On the one hand, I know I’d love them. On the other hand, I know I’d love them and suddenly have a butter habit going on. What to do, what to do?
Hell, I have no will power. I’m sure I’m buying Lurpak the moment I see it for sale. Deb’s Danish butter with specks of sea salt sounds pretty amazing too.
I think now that the initial novelty of OMG SOFT BUTTER 24/7! is worn off a little, we’re back to consuming semi-normal amounts of butter. But if I ever see that sea salt butter, I am so there.
