    I hate unsalted butter.

    Just made a fried egg sarnie not realizing that I picked up unsalted instead of salted butter and it tastes as bad as margarine.

    Supper ruined.


    What do you lot prefer?

    If I was forced upon with butter....

    Sweet [unsalted] variety - fresh as possible.

    An alternative....

    Fused compound [flavoured] butters.
    Easy to do.

    Roasted garlic and fresh basil butter.

    Unlimited to what one can create!

    Salted, mostly. However, I usually have unsalted about as well for cooking when I am cooking with ingredients with high salt levels in already that really do not need the extra salt.

    If you accidentally use unsalted ..... how about sprinkling a bit of salt onto it?

    MArg is chemical detritus.

    ^Me too. There's a gold one and a silver one, right?

    I find they both taste like the milk has gone off a bit.

    Never touch the stuff, salted or otherwise. Margarine also.

    Death by lard.

    Yes, they look quite alike, and same kinda price. Used to be 77b, then suddenly (recently) jumped up to around 90b.

    Outrageous.

    Big C stock Elle and Vire Beurre gastronomique, salted, which is the best butter I have found in Thailand by miles. I highly recommend anyone to try it.

    The only picture I could find is of the unsalted variety



    but as you will see on the link below, the salted has a green bar instead of the blue so as to avoind confusion.

    Butter Salted in foil 82%

    I must have some Italian in me since I love the taste of olive oil. Pour it over salads and use it for sandwich spread...



    Like unsalted butter for cooking since I prefer to add salt to taste.

    Salted butter is expensive here so i buy unsalted and just add salt. When i go home i attack the Kerrygold like it was going out of fashion.

    I feel like I should buy some un-salted so that I know the difference.

    The Thai seem to have this obsession with sweet everything. Even wholemeal bread is sweet. They add sugar to savoury products and sprinkle spice on fruit. WTF is that all about.

    If it still needs to be said - salted butter with added salt (oh my blood pressure ) every time.

    If you know what's good for you, then you will all change to olive oil.

    I use the only one available in my local korean supermarket type place. It's unlabeled or boxed completely, just in a yellow plastic container and I had to play a game of charades with a loaf of bread and a stanley knife to find it (rather rapidly with a fear of death in her eyes). It tastes better than nothing. Just.
    Lang may yer lum reek...
