|Pomegranate Molasses Butter|
I am going gaga for Pomegranates and good Butter. After the molasses making in my last post, Pomegranate Molasses, I made Pomegranate Butter. Not a traditional simmered fruit butter like you might be thinking. Instead, I used this amazing new butter from PastureLand COOP in Minnesota. This rich butter is made from 100% grass fed milk. Grass fed, what's that? Grass fed means that there is no grain added into the cows diet until the ground is unsuitable for grazing. PastureLand works with the animals and with the seasons, producing high quality product from milk just gathered during the warm summer months.
Did you know that the flavor of a cows milk changes daily, and the diet of the animals, even the weather affects the flavor and consistency of the milk that is gathered from the cow? Pastureland milks their cows just while the cows are eating the vibrant summer greens and are producing healthy, flavorful milk. SummerGold cultured butter is made solely from the milk gathered during the warm months of summer when the grass is lush and full of life from the sun. This goodness shows in it's decadent flavor, golden yellow color and creamy texture. Most of the butter on the shelves we see comes from a mish-mash of milk gathered from cows who are fed mostly grains and never even allowed out to graze. This butter does not carry the same qualities as butter made only from grass-fed milk.
Try it for yourself. This butter recipe is amazing. The Pomegranate Molasses adds a tart sweet tang to the creamy butter. Perfect on breads, use it in cooking or even as a sandwich spread.
