Smoked butter becomes something amazing!

I’m sceptical about a lot of things in life, but am always willing to be surprised, as I find myself by the whole twittering business. I’ve found it a great way to find interesting and likeminded people who are into food and writing about it. There seems to be a rich vein of talented food writers and bloggers living in Devon.

So when I recently planned to smoke some butter, I was contacted by Devons newest food blogger Mandy Foster  from Chilli & Chai who was hoping to utilise some of my smoked butter for a cunning recipe she had come up with for Smokin’ Fudge. So I sent her a sample cold smoked with Beech and Apple to give the butter a lovely sweet smokiness.

I was over the moon to then receive back a sample of the incredibly moreish Smokin’ Fudge that Mandy had made from my butter. Though I would have to say that it has turned out to be divisive, with some people loving it, and others not. I was just really pleased that Mandy had given this a go and had produced something that was unusual and innovative, and I’m most definitely in the love it camp, the more I eat the more I want to keep nibbling on it.

  2. Really enjoyed reading Mandy’s blog about your smoked butter and her fudge. How lovely that you can share your “product” in this way! 🙂

    • Definately enjoyed sharing the smoked butter, will be sending some more her way.
      It’s so inspiring sharing recipes and ideas with lovely likemided people, that was why I enjoyed making the good gobble pizza so much.

  3. Will do. I’ll get my friendly fudge maker onto it. I’ve promised her some smoked goats butter, I don’t think it will hurt to ask her to make some smoked chilli chocolate fudge 🙂
    Come on Mandy you know you want to.
    Cheers

  7. I never even knew you could smoke butter, but so far everything smoked I tried was irresistible. I wish we were somewhere around Devons!

  9. A great team effort from the Devon foodies! Couldn’t have happened without the lovely butter. Interesting to watch as people taste, always a definite ‘love it’ or, well, not..!

    • Thanks Mandy, it has been great fun and a great collaboration, agree it is fun seeing peoples taste buds being challenged when I get them to guess what flavour the fudge is.
      Look forward to seeing your blog grow and what great combinations you come up with.
      Cheers
