Rancid butter

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Rancid butter

For over a year I've been buying Morrisons own brand salted butter. The last packs I bought - well in date - tasted noticeably rancid (I am VERY sensitive to dairy rancidity). I had the same problem in the late 1970s - we used to buy Sainsbury's Special Blended (a cheap own-brand at that time) which was often rancid then Anchor (salted, the regular) was rancid. Anyone else had any problems? I'm now using Country Life which is fine but a lot dearer.

Rancid Butter.

Not a problem I've noticed, I pretty much always buy lurpak unless in M&S when I might pick up their Jersey butter which is also nice.

Wild horses would not drag me into a branch of Morrisons.

Rancid butter

Not had a problem with butter, but have bought a couple of packs of all butter puff pastry which smelled distinctly cheesy when I unrolled it, eben though it was well in date & I had kept in fridge. OH insisted it smelled fine to him, so I used it, but then I couldn't eat the beef & ale pie I had made because the pastry was all I could smell even after I cooked it. Gak ...

Yes, so you said a while back. Round my way Morrisons is one of the most popular and there is a good choice of supermarkets.

Lurpak is lactic butter - not to my taste for most things. We all have our preferences. I was brought up on New Zealand salted at home and marge at school. Marge is horrid.

Butter.

Morrisons is really struggling to be accepted "down south". Firstly because of the silly name, secondly because Ken Morrison is very odd, and the main one, for me, I prefer my food to be edible and they seem to have over looked this.

I'm not interested in black pudding, pies sold in a tin or whippets I'm afraid.....

Awful shop.

Wouldn't allow marg to cross my threshhold. It's simply plastic and there's enough of that stuff in world already. We use Welsh Dragon butter. It's the saltiest we can fine. Dropped Anchor years ago as I bought some that was truly rancid and took it back to the shop. The manager removed the entire stock of that batch. Tried it again and it still tasted rancid so not had it since. I make any cakes and pastry with butter. You could say I'm a butterholic!

Agreed T'do. Bought some butter with sea salt at Christmas but too saly for me. Thomasina loved it but Dr did not approve!

They are indeed Welshcookie! I also make no apologies for them!

I will not shop in Morrisons, Asda or Tesco, none of these shops should be allowed to trade, vile revolting places. Greggs is another one. Should be closed down for "crimes to food"

I quite like Greggs's hot sausage rolls. Only God knows what's in them and they are as greasy as Tony Blair, but...comfort food. A lot of it is what you're used to.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer had never heard of Greggs. I find that quite frightening. Where do they live?

Love 'em, hate 'em or tolerate 'em, Greggs are shops that their customers like. Says it all really? I really dislike kebab. So I don't go to kebab places, but the sheer number of them suggests that many do?

Well not butter , but supermarkets . The most vile supermarket I have nearby is Sainsburys it's dreadful .

I think there are good and bad branches of them all, Gravy. When I lived in High Wycombe the local Sainsburys was just revolting. Where I am now, it's excellent.

Butter.

I did have a Greggs sausage roll once, there was nothing else on offer. It was just grissle and as you mention, amazingly greasy.

Both my nieces could happily live on them. It's something I simply cannot fathom, but as you say, they do always seem to be busy.

Greggs (Rancid butter thread)

I understand that Greggs is still a family-owned and run business and are very protective of their staff. Morrisons have a similar reputation, as do M&S. My sis-I-L has worked at the checkout at her local Sainsburys for twenty five years, part time and she classes them as OK employers but not the best -- she also shops at Tescos, Waitrose and Morrisons despite having a very generous staff discount.

I think you're right - not only do the branches vary in the same chain but some chains excel at some things, others at other things. For example, I'm not fond of M&S or Boots sandwiches as there is never enough salt in them for my taste but probably the best choice for those who are used to taking less salt.

It is a matter of taste and we are fortunate in this country to be able to shop around and choose from so many excellent retailers.

Rancid butter

Thankfully I've never experienced it. I use Bertolli for every day use and like it very much. As for supermarkets I use Aldi, Waitrose and Iceland. A branch of Morrison's is due to be built in my nearest town and should be up and running by the end of the year so will give it a try.
