Dorset Dairy Co Cultured Butter 250g
Dorset Dairy Co use the cream that is skimmed off the milk used in their fat free yoghurt to make limited amounts of butter every week. It is made by hand on the farm in the traditional way, by souring the cream with lactic bacteria, before being churned in small batches and rolled into logs.
They gently pasteurise the cream and pour it into a churn where they mix in a blend of live lactobacillus bacteria. They allow these cultures to ferment the warm cream overnight before moving the churn to the cold store, where the cream is aged. During this process, the lactose breaks down the sugars and carbohydrates in the cream and produces certain lactic acids. These are the source of the distinctive rich, tangy and complex buttery flavour that distinguishes their butter from 'normal' butter.
