Asparagus with butter 5 ways

Butter is a good source of vitamin A, D and K, essential for absorption of calcium and phosphorus that we need for strong bones and teeth. Choose organic butter from grass-fed cows over butter f rom grain-fed cows as it provides more conjugated linoleic acid that has strong anti-inflammatory benefits and even protects against certain cancers. Preparing flavoured butters and freezing them in icecube trays is good way to add flavour and nourishment to dishes!

Mackerel and Fennel Stew
