Butter!!! Always have and always will!! When the Margarine spreads first became a major player with the clever advertising lines such as 'You out to be congratulated' for one of the major brands, I remember Mum buying some to try, We all HATED the stuff and immediately went back to good old butter!!! NOTHING tastes like butter, and it is a NATURAL product!! I see that many doctors are now recommending that people use Butter again instead of margarine, and this has definitely impressed me, as I have always felt that butter is so much better ans well as so much nicer!!! Dairy farmers must be feeling much happier now, as the increase in Butter sales has been quite significant, and they are still rising!! Aaaah!!! Good old butter!!! YUM!
I have recently changed back to butter, as my doctor has said that we do need some fats in our diet (obviously important not to go overboard ). I prefer something natural as well, as margarine is all chemicals. It is amazing that something once considered to be so bad, is now good again. It is a real treat to be able to have it again.
Love butter. Cannot stand margarine. My husband uses margarine as doctor told him to but don't uderstand why. One of my daughters used to have margarine but after I told her the benefits of butter over margarine, she changed to butter. Besides, butter is always best in cooking.
Butter butter and more butter, yes I cook with it too mixed with a bit of olive oil in some cases. I don't need any more chemicals in my system and have never bought margarine - family did earlier when I was I young child but that did not last for very long thankfully. And as Jules says, the farmers are benefiting again.
