mmm....butter. Nothing wrong with real butter. Except, of course, it tends to cost more.

I tend to use olive oil or lard for stove-top cooking. If I'm baking, nothing beats butter.

If butter had proper flame retardants the German bombing of a Dutch city (Amsterdam IIRC) early in WW2 would have only collapsed the bridge instead of burning out the city center when a stray bomb ignited a warehouse full of butter. The burning fat set the town afire. Butter needs flame retardants. How many houses are set afire by attempting to deep fry a turkey in non flame retardant butter?

I am kidding about the retardants but not about the fire. That fire provided an excuse for the British to start bombing German civilian populations.
