    Default How to Cook With Butter and Butter Varieties


    Butter is one of the oldest dairy products in the world. Since at least
    2,000 B.C., traditional cultures have cooked with butter and butter
    varieties. Today, butter is making its way back onto our modern tables
    as we realize its health benefits.

    Only as compared to traditional margarine. There
    are new margarines that purport to be much better
    than butter because of the elimination of trans fats
    that the old margarines had. By using polyunsaturated
    vegetable oils, they are much less health-damaging
    than butter.

    There are no health benefits to eating butter as
    compared to not eating butter. People eat butter
    for the same reason people drink alcohol or use
    cocaine: it feels good.

    If I want to feel good, I'll feel a lot better
    eating the bacon that has the same amount of
    saturated fat as a pat of butter.

    Lard has considerably less saturated fat than butter fat, actually:

    and butter has some transfat in it naturally, whereas pork doesn't.

    But I like my butter.

    That'll teach you to listen to somebody named "Water Removal".

    :-)

    Some day I'm just going to killfile all of FoodBanter. I never
    killfiled the September newbies, AOL, Webtv or GG. I've sworn I won't
    killfile FoodBanter, but it's just getting too much.

    You could feel really, REALLY good if you had bacon with a side order
    of buttered toast. ;-)

    I think butter and bacon are both beneficial to bulk of my blessed
    brethren.

    If you're paranoid about butter, just clarify it in water and skim the
    clarified butter off. Gi doesn't have the added junk of unclarified
    butter and is oh so great to cook with.

    I eat bacon (and bacon fat) and butter religiously and my overall
    cholesterol number is 114. These new margerines are nothing special.
    Don't buy the advertising, eat good food. Amish by me seel this butter
    in a wax paper roll. It does taste a bit more rich and creamy that any
    store bought I've had.

    I just wish it was easier to find real lard. This white grabage has no
    flavor. Give me some color and the little bits in there, any day.
