When I lived with David in Wales, he always had Kerry Gold butter at the house. He left it on the counter, so it was never hard - the house was frigid, even in summer, so it worked.
Kerry Gold tastes like European butter and has a lovely pale yellow colour. It looks different than American butter and you can almost taste the grass that the cows eat.
It's a happy day when I can find Kerry Gold at the grocery store. I found that the Kerry Gold site has a store located for the United States. Click here to find the closest store to you.
