  • Butter doesn't have chemicals in it. But you could go organic...

  • I thought butter was butter. I don't use margarine, if that's what you mean.

  • Margarine is one molecule away from being plastic. Butter is just butter.

  • Real butter is best if you can handle the fat.

    We use a lot of apple butter on toast instead of dairy butter. For cooking we use canola or olive oil. For adding to baking we use oil or applesauce, unless it's something that requires butter, no substitutes.

  • Considering the garbage fed to conventional cows (antibiotics, dead cow, etc.), you are best off with an organic butter. I also use olive oil and Earth Balance margarine
