    Price of butter, must be a rip off. Increased drastically recently.
    Actually Alex , its been in short supply and the butter and cream prices have shot the price of milk up to where it needs to be
    Butter prices are on the way back down so I can see your butter getting a bit cheaper soon

    I had a Lidl chicken steak with a baked potato and some leftover chicken korma sauce on it . Oh and some home made green bean chutney - yum

    But the price of milk has not risen where I buy it, butter in the same stores has.

    Thats partly because they skim the milk for the fat to make the butter , so an extra benefit from buying the milk ,and then selling the skim milk as a loss leader to keep you going back for the cheapest milk (as one of your staples)

    Answer: don't buy the cheapest milk!

    A major bugbear of mine is farmers these days not being paid enough by supermarkets for their milk. It's pure exploitation, but driven by the insatiable demands of the public to pay the cheapest prices!

    ^ +1 I buy one of the dearest, although I doubt the farmer gets any extra. Cravendale whole milk is best for me. Lasts a long time, tastes better and microfoams well.

    Oh dont worry . I am not trying to bang a drum for dairy farmers.
    Its always interesting to see how the processors use farm milk.
    Ours is made into cheese ,but they use the whey that comes off the cheese , by passing it through a reverse osmosis type process that takes the lactose sugar out (goes into Mars bars and Lucosade sport) , and then the water is stripped out and reused and the reaining sugars are used as a liquid animal feed for pigs etc.
    Liquid processors will skim the butterfat off your pinta , in varying amounts to arrive at blue top or red or whatever ,and then sell the cream on for an extra shilling (or as has been the case lately ,a soverign or 2 )
    Tonight I will mainly be eating a large Lasagne made from 2 bags of minced beef (farm beef) that came from the deep freeze I discovered had been turned off a few days ago when my stupid daughter plugged the deep fat fryer in . She plugged the wrong plug back in

    So if Oddball drops off the radar , its food poisoning
    I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work
