Butter is one of the most versatile ingredients in the world. And it’s easy to find, too—you can buy it at the grocery store or pick up a stick at your local gas station. But if you’re looking to cook with butter, you’ll want to know what kind is best for your recipe. There are four major types of butter: salted, unsalted, sweet cream (also known as cultured or European-style), and whipped. Each type has its own qualities and uses, so let’s take a look at them below!
Butter is a delicious food and a healthy fat source, but it’s also incredibly versatile. You can bake with it, fry with it, sauté vegetables in butter and even use it in place of oil for many recipes. Some people even put butter on their toast! Butter comes from cows’ milk or from buffalo milk (depending on the country). There are many different types of butter out there that all have different flavors and uses. We’ll go over some common types of butter below so you know what you’re buying when you hit up your local grocery store or farmer’s market!
Butter is a fat that’s made when cream is churned. It can be used in cooking, baking, and as a spread on bread or toast. Butter comes in many different forms: salted, unsalted and sweet cream butters are the most common types you’ll find at the grocery store. But there are also other options like whipped butter (which has air whipped into it) or European-style butters that are cultured to have more flavor than regular American butters. Salted butter usually contains about 1/3 less water than unsalted butter so it keeps longer and has more fat per serving — which is why we recommend using salted whenever possible! Unsalted butter is best for baking because using salted will cause your recipe’s salt content to vary depending on what type of salt you use (and how much).
There are many types of butter to choose from, and they all have different uses. The best thing you can do is try them all out so you can find which one works best for your needs!
