Banner Butter partnered with Pitt Master Matt Pittman at Meat Church to create the perfect barbecuing butter. Our freshly churned butter is mixed with Meat Church's Honey Hog BBQ Rub to create a sweet and southern butter perfect for ribs, pork, chicken, and veggies!
The vast majority of butter sold in America is sweet cream butter. That means that, after the cream is pasteurized, it is immediately churned.
That also means that it has very little taste. So, to give it flavor, many butter manufacturers add “natural flavoring,” or “lactic acid.”
Butter churned from sweet cream lacks the flavors that can only come from a long-ripening process where a special mixture of bacteria is added to the cream and held at precisely the right temperature, for precisely the right amount of time.
This good bacteria is one of the things that makes our butter taste so good.
If you’ve ever eaten butter from small creameries in France, Italy, or Denmark, then you’ve had cultured butter. And if your great grandma made her own butter on the farm, then you’ve eaten cultured butter too.
Let’s reclaim the way butter should be, shall we?
