Summer butter

What are summer and winter butters? The answer to this question may be arbitrary, but summer butter is essentially made from the milk of cows that graze in the summer. 

Winter butter is made with the milk of cows that remain indoors in winter and who eat silage. The feed influences the composition of the milk and the fatty acids in it. Summer butter contains more soft fats, making it creamier and softer. Moreover, grass gives butter a vibrant yellow colour. In winter, butter is paler, harder and its taste is less pronounced as it contains more hard fats.

The milk of the Irish butter that Jules Destrooper uses is sourced from Southwestern Ireland. The cattle are Holstein Friesians and belong to a black and white breed known for their high melk production .  Ireland has a moderate maritime climate, and doesn't experience frigid winters or hot summers. That means their cows can graze outdoors the whole summer long.

Valencia Almonds

Almond trees are resilient and have a long lifespan. Roman farmers already knew that this tree thrived in hard, dry soil. Valencia almonds owe their unique taste to this soil. Significantly sweeter than their American relatives, the Californian almonds. By the way, did you know that almonds are a rich source of oil, with the fruit consisting of 60% oil? They also contain several minerals and are rich in magnesium, the anti-stress mineral par excellence.

Sugar

What sugar tastes better than Tienen sugar? Exactly, none! This pure delicacy is selected and sieved with the utmost of care. It also dissolves very quickly and is very soft, so it is the ideal sugar to use in biscuits. By the way – did you know that humans can only distinguish 5 basic tastes? Sweet, sour, salt, bitter and Umami (hearty). But we are actually born with a clear preference for sweet things. So it’s logical that little kids immediately love Jules Destrooper biscuits!
