Stirling Creamery™ unsalted butter now available
People in the food service industry have been using Stirling Creamery™ butter since 1925 for burnished breads, pie crusts, mile high cakes and chewy cookies.
Churn84™ is an 84% butterfat butter – the first of its kind in Ontario – and boasts a richer, more pronounced dairy flavour, making it “one of the world’s 30 great butters”, according Saveur Magazine.
According to a press release, Churn84™ is reminiscent of old-world European butters, where the minimum butterfat content permitted is 82%. In Canada, the standard has always been 80 per cent butterfat. Increased butterfat means 20 per cent less water, great for or both professional chefs and home cooks looking to make picture perfect puff pastry, viennoiseries and other recipes that call for a richer butter. Churn84™ Unsalted Applications For the Home Cook:
– Ideal for baking and making pastry dough (croissants, rolls, breads)
– Use for adding sheen to ganaches and savoury sauces
– Excellent for sauteing
– Perfect for making candies and other confections
Churn84™ unsalted is available in 250g bars at retailers in Ontario and Vancouver. Retail price typically ranges from $5.49 to $6.49.
