Does the Chesse Block sell craft butter? I just read an article in the Guardian about small batches of craft butter which people spread on artisan bread - it sounds lush - much nicer than that President butter from Normandy.

I think it's quite easy to make a small amount yourself. Lots of shaking involved.

Chesse ? You should ask for a refund on your school fees Bob.

I understand that Herne Hill Farmers Market now has organic buffalo butter, they keep the animials in a paddock in Brockwell park and you are allowed to hand milk them and churn your own product. Absolute delish. There are plans to introduce alpacas next.

I like alpacas but I couldn't eat a whole one.

Itís in the paddock Bob, in front of the locomotive station.

That'll be the Herne Hill farmers market in Stoke Newington. Not the one in Herne hill.

I know you're taking the piss, but General Store (Bellenden Rd) and Mons cheesemongers both sell good butter.

You can get a butter maker in a kilner jar that involves adding cream and lots of hand cranking

Sounds fun and you also get butter milk as a by product, great for making your own bread with to spread your own home made butter on

I really want some craft butter - are the butters in the General Store and Mons crafted or manufactured butters?

Yes- it was the first science experiment I was set. We were given a small glass bottle with a screw top to take home and told to put milk in it and shake it...it works!

Gentle fun, not malicious - I leave that to others. You can get buffalo butter, not sure about alpaca though. I expect a hand churned product is very expensive, You'll probably get it in an agritourism type place in Italy, Croatia and the like. I miss the tart yogurt of my childhood - commercially produced but very different. Returning to Brockwell Park there is of course the country fair, [www.lambeth.gov.uk]

Good to get away from Brexit for a few moments.

I don't tend to go out of ED much, though I did go to a 50th birthday party just over the hill in Sydenham last Saturday!

I think the major brand of hand churned butter available is called "Crafty Nutter"....but its only available from 100% plastic free vendors...so you have to take a scoop home in your hands....

Where can you get the vegan craft butter? I presume they use almond or soya butter?

Even better - crafting cultured vegan butter!

You could try the new butcher's in Dulwich Village - I see they will be selling cheese in addition to meat, so they might do craft butter as well.

Do you feel like a complete shit when you see people sleeping on the streets in doorways and all you can think of is where to get your craft butter to spread on your "artisan" ******* bread.

1p from every tub of craft butter sold at my local organic, gluten free farmers market stall, goes to help weave new sleeping bags out of leftover artisan loaves for the homeless to use.

so I feel good.

The sleeping bags made out of artisan loaves. Very interesting. 5 loaves - was there any fish involved?

Pretty labor-intensive, but you can experiment, why not

I've just read in today's Guardian that you can also get craft bacon with none of those carcinogenic nitrites added. Does anyone know if WR, F&H or the new place in DV sell craft bacon?

Bog butter, Bob. thatís what you need. Makes craft butter look like test-tube margarine.

Nice and waxy after hundreds or thousands of years it can also help you with your front door problem with waterproofing and wood preservation qualities.
