What is Plugra and where can you get it?

  1. It's an 82.5% butterfat butter and it's at any Whole Foods. An alternative is Cabot 83. If it's called for in a specific recipe you have, it's not necessary. The author wants to sound sophisticated.

    1. We buy Plugra brand butter at our very local Trader Joe's.

      Because it has a higher butter fat content and a lower melting point than most butters it literally melts in your mouth, It's just a really very tasty butter even tho it's made with no salt. . You must try it for yourself to see. Good for baking too.

      1. Trader Joe's. It's like $8 at my WF.

          Saw it at TJ's today - 3.99/lb.

          1. re: Sarah

            fairway in nyc also sells it sometimes for less than 3.990ib. its great to base turkey with and adds a really great flavor when mixed with roasted garlic, a little salt and pepper.

        2. I've seen it at Super Target for the same price as Trader Joe's.

          1. I've found it at Sam's for $6.00 or so. I like the way it tastes, too.
