CUPBOARD LOVE : Butter Buds


I've just found this amazing little product! Ever since I've been following a low fat diet, I've often wished I could buy tiny, portion-sized amounts of butter or low fat margarine, for the odd occasions when I might want to use it.
For those of you who really struggle with the loss of butter in your life, this might be the product for you.
 The granules are are made from real butter, but are gluten free and suitable for vegetarians. They don't need to be refrigerated and have a year long shelf life.

These were from Lakeland. They cost £4.29 for 40 sachets. I just keep them in my larder for the rare occasions when I might want a little melted butter for a recipe, or just fancy that buttery taste on a toasted crumpet.

They are 0pp/10kcal per 2g sachet. You can have 2 sachets for 0pp.

They come in these little 2g sachets.



You can sprinkle the granules directly ono hot, moist foods such as jacket potatoes...



...or mix them with a little boiled water. They turn into melted butter!



I tried it on a toasted crumpet. It certainly tastes buttery and quite salty. Butter purists may not like it.
I think it would be at its best mixed with crushed garlic for garlic bread, or brushed onto layers of filo pastry when baking. It would also give a lovely flavour to fried onions. I'm sure there are many uses for it, I'll do some experimenting.

Lipsmackingly Buttery!
