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...

Butter

Can anyone explain please about when to buy salted butter and when unsalted. I wondered if it is salted for savory and unsalted for sweet.
Thanks.

Salt adds flavour - i.e. It is just one of the original flavour enhances. Some recipes call for unsalted butter but then add a specific amount of salt, so that you can control the quantity. But I prefer to buy the slightly salted versions anyway, although even with 'full salt' butter I don't find it too salty, so I ignore when recipes say this, & use what I have in. I rarely buy unsalted & can't say that it makes an iota of difference, in my honest opinion.

The only time I would used un-salted butt specifically would if I was making Cream....not something I do these days :)

I've got into the habit of always buying unsalted butter for baking but am sure I wouldn't be able to taste the difference.

It depends entirely on your personal taste. The advantage to unsalted butter when you are cooking both savoury and sweet dishes is that you have more control over the amount of salt you use in the recipe.

I prefer unsalted butter for making cakes but other people think it doesn't make a difference.

I prefer the taste of unsalted butter on bread but the rest of the family complain bitterly when there isn't any salted butter on the table.
