WHEN I WAS A KID I remember eating New Zealand butter and thinking it was the best thing I’d ever had. When I visited New Zealand a few years back, it was as good as I remembered. But it’s very hard to get in the United States — I assume there’s some sort of trade barrier. On a whim, I searched Amazon the other day, found it, and ordered some. It came yesterday, and yes, it’s very good.
UPDATE: Oops, now Amazon seems to be sold out. Reader Patrick Carroll recommends this Irish butter. I’ve ordered that in the past, and it’s good, but I think the New Zealand is a bit better — it has more of those floral notes that make it really good. Jeff Kline recommends this canned butter from New Zealand. I’ve never tried it. Canned butter?
MORE: No, I have no idea what they mean by “Certified kosher under the supervision of Halal.” I understand that Kosher and Halal are pretty much synonymous, but still . . .
