When Unsalted Butter is mentioned in a recipe, what kind of butter do you use? I normally use Kerrigold - as it's what I normally have in the fridge

Kerrigold will be salted butter. I know Avonmore do an unsalted butter in a 1/2lb block. It's a silver wrapper.

That would have salt in it though, I've only ever seen avonmore unsalted butter, and it was in a silver pack as opposed to the gold you usually see with butter.

Yep, Avonmore's your only man for the unsalted. What are you making?

Unsalted butter is mainly used on the continent but you can buy it in the supermarkets here. The 'normal' butter we use here has salt in it so if you want to follow the recipe exactly you need to buy unsalted butter.

If there is salt in the recipe then it should be fine to use the salted butter and leave out the extra salt.

Adding to randomness....Flora Buttery is brilliant for cooking a gorgeous flavour. But when the reciepe says unsalted i always use Avonmore.

Lurpack also do an unsalted butter - also in silver foil. Generally any butter in gold foil is salted, and silver foil is unsalted. Unsalted is your only man for baking, but it's rubbish for eating on toast/spuds.
