When I was offered a chance to try a couple of new products from Kerrygold I jumped at it! I would like to issue a warning here that one of the products is a reduced fat butter. This would be a first for me and no one will be more surprised than my Mom. Hi Mom! Last time my folks came to visit, my Mom brought her own butter-like spread. I told her it would still be here next time she comes to visit, because I won't eat that stuff!
Next time I will have something delicious to offer her in place of my normal fat laden butter. You see Kerrygold, has a new Reduced Fat Butter with less sodium and they are also bringing out a new Naturally Softer Butter. This stuff is good enough to just eat with a spoon. Not that I would really do that, well maybe just a little taste.
I got in the kitchen and got a little creative with the new Kerrygold butters. I really love compound butters but I rarely think to make them. I made two different compound butters and now I have to admit to eating it right off of the spoon. They will knock your socks off! I made these and realized I needed biscuits! I whipped up a batch of buttermilk biscuits and talk about butter love.
You cannot beat the quality of Kerrygold products. I have been a fan of their Dubliner cheese for a long time and just recently found their butter locally. The lady at the grocery store must have thought I was a little crazy to be so excited over butter!
First up is the Cinnamon-Honey Fig Butter. You must try this, I am so addicted that I didn't even save any for the kids. I did share with my husband; however, reluctantly! I promise you will never suspect that it's made with reduced fat butter!
Cinnamon-Honey Fig Butter
- ½ cup Kerrygold Reduced Fat Butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons dried figs, chopped small
- ¼ teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
Place in a small bowl and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap or in an airtight container and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
*fabulous served with biscuits, toast, waffles, bagels or English muffins or right off of the spoon!
Next up we have Lemon Poppy Seed Butter. Sweet and lemony with a great little crunch from the poppy seeds. I just love lemon poppy seed muffins but I don't always have time to make them. Spread this on a biscuit or a piece of whole wheat toast and it's like a little piece of breakfast heaven.
Lemon Poppy Seed Butter
- ½ cup Kerrygold Naturally Soft Butter
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
In a small bowl stir together all ingredients until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap or in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
I know you will enjoy these compound butters and believe me when I tell you the new Kerrygold butters are every bit as delicious as I claim.
*Disclaimer: Kerrygold provided me with samples of the butter to try. Kerrygold is hosting a contest between a few bloggers to see who has the best use of the butter. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post.
