Butter – salted or unsalted? Everyone has a preference (some, even, for margarine but let’s not go there)
One thing I was ignorant to – read ‘one of the many things’ – is that branding would alter between countries.
Being a salted butter gal, I’m sure you can imagine my delight on finding Kerrygold original in our local supermarket. R was pretty convinced that it was going to be unsalted but I put that down to him not knowing his Irish butter as well as I.
Oh. The sadness when I try it and it is indeed UNsalted.
Dear reader, please do not imagine that I am having to use a salt shaker over my butter in the meantime – I came prepared and packed butter in my case when flew out! It is, however, necessary to find a suitable replacement ASAP
And so on the next trip, I peruse the butter section and discover that President (well known to me as unsalted French stuff proffered at Paul and such like) is in fact salted, in Germany. I also discover Kerrygold extra and am delighted to report that it’s suitably salted and adds a touch of Ireland to our fridge.
Food catastrophe nummer 1 averted!
Kerrygold Ungesalzen indeed…tsk!
