What’s Better For You, Butter Or Margarine?

Like It's Even A Debate

ASAP Science asks one of the most important questions in nutrition: According to science, what’s better for you, butter or margarine? Not what’s better in general, obviously, because that’s a laughably easy question to answer.

They break it down thusly: Butter has one or two ingredients and is minimally processed but is high in saturated fat; margarine has a ton of ingredients and is extremely processed, is sometimes high in trans fats but sometimes not, and it’s hard to tell what its nutritional value is because there’s a lot of variation. So, bottom-line, it depends on what your nutrition goals are and how good you are at moderating what I can only assume are your unstoppable cravings for butter. Keep reading »

Now We Know How Much Butter Is In A Cronut

Dominique Ansel handed over his cronut recipe on “Good Morning America,” and while Gothamist claims that 26 tablespoons of butter is a “whopping” amount for the entire recipe, I beg to differ. If you want croissants, you’re going to have to accept the fact that you’re eating more than two tablespoons of butter per croissant. What really takes the cronut over the top is the “grapeseed oil as needed” in which you fry the dough.

Also, don’t be appalled at the amount of time it takes — y’all ever made croissants? It’s always a three-day process. Beautiful things take time and attention. Croissants are beautiful things. Oh, and it is worth it. Homemade croissants are ambrosia. Keep reading »

So it turns out you guys are as big of freaks about butter as I am! I really did feel weird writing my Ode to Butter until a rash of you swooped in and expressed how dedicated to butter you are, too. There’s nothing like the Internet to build communities you didn’t know you needed.

That being said, it’s also given me a damn good excuse to sift through the web to find the best compound butter recipes out there. Use this shit on bread. Put it in your oatmeal. Cook burgers in it. Cook steaks in it. Mash it into potatoes and sweet potatoes and cauliflower. Slather it on all your vegetables. Use it for your Italian buttercream. Use it for your American buttercream. Put it in your cocktails and your coffee. Eat it plain for that matter! Just get more butter in your life.

MOOOOAR. BUTTTTERRRRR.

I Have Been Waiting My Whole Life For This Butter Knife

I love toast. I love butter. I especially love toast slathered in butter. And nothing ruins a perfectly good piece of toast like cold, hard butter that refuses to spread, breaks the bread and nestles into little chunks that refuse to melt. And then when you bite into it? Dry toast with chunks of butter all up in your mouth, ruining your day. If only there was a way to cut and spread cold butter in a way that keeps the structural integrity of the toast, I have found myself thinking every single time my breakfast has been destroyed.

Well, NOW THERE IS. Keep reading »

An Ode To Butter

An Ode To Butter

I’m coming out. I’m a buttersexual. Or, I mean, my tongue is, but my tongue is part of me, so. What I’m saying is, I’m just not at all attracted to canola oil. Jam is great and maybe once in a while I’m sort of interested in it on my toast, but in general, I’m just attracted to butter. In my mouth. Keep reading »
