Brazilian Challenge Day 90: Buffalo Butter

For day 90 of my challenge to become more Brazilian, I grabbed a tub of buffalo butter off the cooler shelf at the grocery store. Just one of those things you’ve gotta try. Right?

I honestly had never seen buffalo butter before. Nor had I ever consider this butter possibility. I mean, I just can’t imagine someone milking a buffalo. But this particular buffalo bi-product was produced right here in Brazil.

So what does buffalo butter taste like? Well, it tasted less fatty than regular butter, although after some research I discovered it actually has a higher fat content. Apparently it has more nutritional value than regular butter. The flavor is milder. Aside from the flavor, it is also white, not yellow like cow’s milk butter.

If you do come across this butter, be sure it is actually butter and not the leather balm under the same name.

    For some people milking a buffalo would be considered foreplay ( some people: http://www.bossabreezes.blogspot.com )
