    Oh Sweden! Shall I send you some of my lovely, salty butter?

  • I like real butter too and always use it for baking, mind you I used an unsalted home brand so it’s still not too expensive. Love a big piece of brown bread with melting butter… and brown rice with butter and parmesan. However, have to show some restraint at time!

  • Margarine is not a food, I’m glad butter is making a comeback!

  • Swede

    The real reason that we have a buttershortage in sweden is that people who eats lowcarb and highfat diet has really taken of, 25% of the swedes do try and cut down their carb intake, and at the same time increase their fat intake. And whats better then natural butter.

  • Nothing wrong with some butter:) It’s much better for you than margarine. I cook everything with butter now and it tastes so much better.
