In planning for my St. Patrick’s Day feast, I was looking for ways to make the meal more authentic. I found a way to do that with the brand Kerrygold. They offer numerous dairy items imported from Ireland and packaged here in the states. I picked up some of their pure Irish butter as the perfect way to top some Irish soda bread.
Kerrygold produces a couple kinds of butter. You have salted, which I bought, along with unsalted, and garlic & herb. The milk that is used to produce this butter is from cows that eat grass year long. A more natural diet, produce a better milk, and then better butter. It has a richer taste than the butter most people buy in this country. It is also creamier. But it comes with a higher price tag, which is ok for a special occasions like St. Patrick’s Day. The color of the butter is more of a bright yellow than the average butter.
Where to Buy Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter
Check out their website, it has a search on where you can find their butter. The week of St Patrick’s Day, most grocery stores that carry it will have it on sale, so it’s a good time to stock up on this outstanding butter. If you can’t find it in a store in your area, you can also purchase it online
