Embrace Your Inner Ina Garten And Load Up On Her Go-To Butter
Cooking like Ina Garten requires a few high-quality ingredients, such as Cabot unsalted butter from Vermont. Its rich flavor and smooth texture make it Garten's butter of choice.
Garten may favor Cabot, but she also approves of other quality butter brands. She says to always use unsalted butter "so you are able to control the amount of salt in the recipe."
Cabot's 83% butterfat content gives it a soft, velvety texture. You can buy this brand specifically or look for other butters with plenty of butterfat and a short ingredients list.
Premium butter has a rich yellow hue, which indicates that it comes from grass-fed cows. Slow-churned butter also has a better, richer flavor, as it contains less air.
