  2. I love butter. Always buying it natural without salt or other additions. Discovered local farm here in Dallas and they sell butter they make right here. Amazingly tasty! It is so good that I use it more like a treat to make foods tasty. Delicious and healthy! Thank you for your post – may be people will stop eating all those vegetable-oil-based Ah I dont believe… products and return to healthy, delicious butter.
