Why does the butter that is available in the groceries today, not taste like the butter I grew up with? In the last few years the butter has tasted more like margarine than a sweet dairy butter. I have tried numerous brands and find all failing to meet the 'buttery' flavor I am looking for. Any ideas 'why'?

It has less salt and seems more watery. I've noticed the same thing. If you have an Indian grocery in your area, try Amul butter. It's delicious!

I tripped over a blurb on making your own butter with a KitchenAid -

I buy two cups of store brand sterilized pasteurized nukified whatever ,,, heavy whipping cream.

into the KA (lift bowl style) with the wire whisk, takes 15-20 minutes and you got homemade butter + real buttermilk.

you can squeeze out as much water as you wish.

the buttermilk is not a throw-away - it makes superb pancakes/waffles.

the peanut gallery has pronounced the homemade butter superior to store butter.....
