The Splendid Table’s Lynne Rosetto Kasper joined Tom Crann today to taste test three local butters: Land O’ Lakes, Hope Creamery and Rochdale.

An excerpt from the tasting:

Rosetto Kasper: Let it melt like chocolate on your tongue. It’s so nice. It has a bit of salty taste, even though all of these are unsalted butter. But it has, it reminds me of the pasture. What do you think?

Crann: I taste a little bit almost of white chocolate, at the beginning. But then it doesn’t get sweet. Richness.

Rosetto Kasper: It’s nice.

Crann: Rich and thick.
