I have read about kerrygold butter.. is this the best stuff we can buy in the stores? I cannot get raw cream all the time, I try but its a 5 hour drive plus 10 dollars per PINT... so we get it when we can ( making the drive tomarrow, they said the OP stuff will be back in tomarrow) Anyway, what is the next best butter to use? OR would none be the same nutritionally?
Thank yoU!

Kellie,

It is a really good butter, it's just pasteurized. It's from grass fed cows and mine is a deep yellow, sometimes more yellow than OP butter. It's my back-up butter after OP and what I use for cooking.

Yes, I think so. I did a taste test once, and found that KerryGold tastes better, and is much yellow-er than a lot of expensive butters at the HFS. I wonder if it's that rich, Irish soil?

I'm also impressed that the cream comes from a lot of local dairies. This is from their website:

"Unlike many large food producers, Kerrygold is a co-op. That means the raw materials we use to make our cheeses and butter - such as milk - come from a vast number of small, local Irish farmers."
