Butter as a mood enhancer? This is definitely true when it is slathered on hot thick slices of toast, pushed into the lacy top of a crumpet, topping a steak or melted with sage to toss through pasta. It also turns out that the process of making butter is equally therapeutic. The ingredients are simple and the processes relatively straightforward, but it feels like a very worthwhile accomplishment to start out with cream and end up with a golden pat of butter. The primrose-yellow colour itself definitely plays a part . Butter as therapy? Worth a shot.
