I normally buy the standard supermarket butter, it tastes fine. No problems. I thought that I would try a different one, Yorkshire Butter. It's a much richer colour and it melts into whatever you spread it on. It tastes better too, especially when spread on toast and crumpets. I hadn't realised that supermarket butter didn't do that. Now I am spoilt, it's probably going to be Yorkshire from now on.

Sadly B, nothing local to me, I wish there was, but to redeem myself a little I do use British butter for baking, but I am feeling a bit guilty about my Lurpak obsession that is supposed to be an embarrassed face.
Talking about English/British butter leads me to ask something..... On the radio I heard someone saying how leaving with no deal will stop the flow of fruit and veg and what will we do without fresh fruit and veg Am I that naive, but I was pretty sure we grow fruit and veg in this country, as displayed in the local farm shops and abundant farmers markets. Or are they talking about "cheap" fruit, veg and other foods. If we have to pay more for produce grown in this country, doesn't that mean we will eat less, lose weight and be more healthy, therefore reducing all the weight related diseases the government have now put out warnings about. I'm sure it's not as simple as that and I apologise in advance if i've got it wrong but would appreciate if someone could help me out on this thought.
Didn't we manage ok before the EU growing our own food? lived seasonally etc.,
My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities. And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.
I use little butter nowadays but when I do buy it, I always make sure it’s British butter. Buy British and help our farmers! Jazzy you need to stop that Lurpak habit!!!
Yes I know I do Gracie, I felt so embarrassed to admit this, I had never thought about this betrayal of mine before Trisha posted this subject.
B, I think we have always been a nation of growing our own, but our weather is not always on our side, and supermarkets now provide such a variety and extremely cheap, a lot of our Kent orchards have disappeared, and so have our vegetable farms, they have now become profit making oil seed rape and grain producers, no back breaking cabbage and brussel sprout picking in the harsh winter months, it was a very limited vegetable choice in the winter months in times past, cabbage, cabbage and more cabbage, we are spoilt rotten now, so much choice all year.
