This is real butter. Real butter made from fresh milk. I actually cannot get a picture that shows how yellow it is. It is the colour of free range, free run, pastured chickens' egg yolks. So beautiful. I had a small amount of cream that made about a tablespoon of butter. Silly to go to the trouble really, but Allan wanted me to try and we did it. It is so fresh and creamy tasting. Wow. We will do this again.
