I have been reading through some old posts-- they said Kerry Gold butter is not all that good for you--Dr. K wrote about testing it and it had zero K2. Any thoughts?

It's flavor and spreadability is so amazing. Research has shown, that is has a 3/6 ratio of 1/1,4. Pretty nice result.

My guess is if you are making ghee from the organic sweet cream butter, you'll be removing all the milk solids from the butter anyways and be left with the fat/ghee. So, if I understood your question right, by making it into ghee it should be... (more)

Kerrygold is to butter as ___ is to sauerkraut? Are there any Paleo-Friendly (or sort of friendly) sauerkraut brands? Or is it a make it yourself kind of deal? Feel free to include other fermented foods other than just sauerkraut. (more)

Eric, since you are in Seattle, I would highly recommend the Firefly Kitchen line of lacto-fermented goodness. Their Ruby Red Sauerkraut made me a fan of red cabbage (no small feat). Makes Bubbie's look affordable though.

There is more beta-carotene in the Spring grass, which impacts the color of the butter. Fresh grass is also nutritionally more dense. Now that we're nearing the end of the good growing season, the taste of butter will change.
