What is whey butter?
Whey Butter is a by-product of cheese making and is recognised by the Slow Food UK movement as one of the UK’s great ‘forgotten foods’. Unlike ordinary British butter which is produced using fresh milk, the butterfat within whey butter undergoes the initial processes of cheese making. Whey butter has a firm texture and in comparison to fresh butter types is oilier and less shiny. Considered healthier than other types of butter due to having a lower fat content, whey butter is also versatile in the kitchen and can be used for cooking, baking or even simply as a topping.

Why is it forgotten?
Producers of whey butter are rare due to production methods being time-consuming, labour intensive and requiring specific skills that are only known by a limited number of dairymen who take a hands-on approach to butter production.

Secret Indulgence

Usually have Olive Oil Spread as minding the carbs but it is nice to cheat now and again with a really tasty slightly salted proper butter and this is definitely that. Tasty it is, spreads well if left out of the fridge for a while to soften.

Beautiful Butter

A.A Milne could have been writing about this butter. However, 'I do like a little bit of butter with my bread' should be 'I really like a lottle butter ' & possibly 'Hold the bread'. With this butter you can well understand why in the past a dish of butter was served as a pudding! Now pass the teaspoon.
