Tinned butter

Post by rik_uk3 » Mon Jun 02, 2014 11:10 am

Not sure if this site has been mentioned before

http://shop.conserva.de/en/18-canned-butter

Very good site, they ship fast and postage is fixed at €9.90.

The tinned butter is very good, the tinned cheese is similar to 'Cheese Processed' in the old army compo ration packs and the bread is pretty good.

Damn annoying you have to shop on a german site and not a uk one.

Tinned butter is not hard to find in France and Spain, we have a friend living in Normandy who ordered five cases from a small local supermarket (who must have thought he was quite mad) and he bought the butter over for us last year when he was visiting family in England.

Ghee is easy enough to find in the UK and is a pretty good substitute.

I got some from the Deli in town a big tin there were two different sorts (I don't remember the difference) I got it for cooking but never thought of it as something one could use as a spread, it was curiosity on my part, its so high in artery clogging fat that I didn't get anymore, though it is readily available, I wouldn't mind betting a big Tesco would have it in.
I have a strategy, it's not written in stone, nor can it be, this scenario has too many variables, everything about it depends on those variables, being specific is not possible.

Yep, they all do.

Try the "World food" aisle, or the Indian aisle.

Yep the big Tesco's sell it as do most good Asian stores. Get butter ghee and not the vegetable version. Very nice on toast with a bit of Marmite :)
