Advantages Descent flavour
Disadvantages Falls off the knife
I spied StIvel's Utterly Butterly the other day in my local Morrison's store,normally I might have wandered straight past it,but it was on offer at the bargain price of 66pence for a 500g tub.Always looking for my bargains I thought I'd risk it and try a tub.
I normal refer to buy real butter,or olivio,and soya spread for my son.The Olivio is better for me,the butter hard to spread from the fridge and the soya is not for me anyway,so all things considered I thought it worth a try.
The spread itself.
As you might expect the colour of the spread is a cross between a rich butter and margerine.The mid yellow spread has a glossy appearance and i mid consistancy.
I tried the spread on bread,croissants,in cakes and for frying onions,the flavour again is between butter and margerine,and although not a patch on a rich salted butter,was quite pleasing and palletable.
Frying with it produced mixed results,with it performing quite well,but like butter apt to burning if the heat is not monitored exactly.
Baking was no problem with the outcome leaving me unable to tell the difference between this and most other products.
Spreading on bread was where it was most noticably different.The tase as I said was somewhere between the flavours,but actually using it was difficult.It would not for love nor money stick to the knife.It made it difficult to spread as as soon as your knife approached the bread the stuff fell off the knife.Once it was on the bread though teh spreading consistancy was good even straight from the fridge.
The declared uses are as follows-
Suitable for vegetarians.

Dairy crst ltd,
On offer this is a neat little spread with a fair few virtues.Full priced it is a little lacking.It has annoying lack of adhesion to knives,but a great spreading texture.I would reccomend it reservedly,but if available on offer a definate buy.
