Mmmmm butter

Salted or unsalted?
Salt is added to butter for flavour and as a preserving agent for improved shelf life. The amount of salt added does vary between makers so it is hard to tell how much salt you are including in your dish. salt is added during processing either by using granular salt or a strong brine. Using unsalted butter allows the chef to control the amount of salt included.

Now try this tongue twister….

Betty Botter

Betty Botter bought some butter.
“But,” she said, “the butter’s bitter.
If I put it in my batter,
it will make my batter bitter.
But a bit of better butter–
that would make my batter better.”

So she bought a bit of butter,
better than her bitter butter.
And she put it in her batter,
and the batter was not bitter.
So ’twas better Betty Botter
bought a bit of better butter!
