Summer butter

The secret of the Emerald Isles

What are summer and winter butters? The answer to this question may be arbitrary, but summer butter is essentially made from the milk of cows that graze in the summer. 

Winter butter is made with the milk of cows that remain indoors in winter and who eat silage. The feed influences the composition of the milk and the fatty acids in it. Summer butter contains more soft fats, making it creamier and softer. Moreover, grass gives butter a vibrant yellow colour. In winter, butter is paler, harder and its taste is less pronounced as it contains more hard fats.

The milk of the Irish butter that Jules Destrooper uses is sourced from Southwestern Ireland. The cattle are Holstein Friesians and belong to a black and white breed known for their high melk production .  Ireland has a moderate maritime climate, and doesn't experience frigid winters or hot summers. That means their cows can graze outdoors the whole summer long.

Honey

A sweet, floral medley

Honey may be the healthiest sweetener we know! The honey we use is a strain derived from various flowers: it's derived from several flowers with different origins (we use a mix of Latin American and Asian honey). The advantage of this special blend? This authentic pure honey always tastes the same and has the same colour. We also rigorously control the honey, which allows us to ban pesticides and antibiotics!
