Amish Butter
[Return to Topics]

I friend just gave me a roll of Amish butter as a gift. I'm dying to try it, but first I need to find out if any meat products are commonly used in the making of the butter, e.g. is lard used to grease the mold. I ask because I know Amish products are often made with lard.

I'd very much appreciate any info anyone has on this.

Do Not Eat That Butter    Posted 11-11-2002 at 13:37:36       [Reply]  [No Email]
Nathan, it is very bad for you. It is made from animals. It is not koser. You will be exiled or excommunicated from your faith or whatever.
I'm going to help you. Just send that roll to me and I'll take care of it for you. Always glad to help a person in need. No thanks needed, just be sure to send the butter.

Natan, I am not amish, but I live in a very predominate amish area of PA. I have never heard of greasing a butter mold, as butter is in itself a grease.
I feel that you will be safe assuming that the mold is greased by the contents,(butter only)
I hope you enjoy your gift,

Butter is butter...ya know...Butter fat from milk?

Why would you think anyone would need to 'grease' a mold with anything other than the butter you are molding?

I don't get it...


PS...I take it you are a vegitarian...

ummmm...    Posted 11-11-2002 at 08:45:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
I guess Natan is really asking whether it meets kosher standards.

Butter is butter...and he said:

"I need to find out if any meat products are commonly used in the making of the butter"...

I just find that question silly...Sorry...Must be my warped sense of reality...

Yup, way too seriously! I'm only fussy when it comes to eating cats - won't eat the prowlers, and they'd better be yowlin fresh! :) (now whut's wrong with that?) lol

And lobsters only if their heads are kept above the boiling water so i can hear them scream ---

Kangaroos are a bit tallowy but won't touch a wombat unless he's smoked.

And chocolate - did you ever see how it's made?

Oh heck, we're as weird as the rest of the world when it comes right down to it -- we're just used to our recipes. :)
