    I also like to take a decent sized knob of butter and let it melt in my mouth as my emergency snack. I don't really see how it's any worse than cheese or milk to be honest. How healthy is it? I don't know, but given that the 'sensible recommendation' from conventional wisdom would probably be a banana or some slices of Ryvita, I think I'll stick with my unsalted Welsh butter.

    Pecan nuts dragged across the top of butter... my guilty pleasure!

    Just out of idle curiosity, does any one drink butter tea (aka Tibetan tea)?
