Irish Black Butter

This innovative new product has really created a stir in the food world. When you read butter, think Armagh Bramley apples and cider, instead of milk. It’s a conserve a bit like a fruit cheese. You can put it on toast, pair it with cold meats and cheese and also eat it with apple pie or ice-cream.

It was created by Alastair Bell, who took time out from his events and farm model customisation business. He was inspired by “a combination of bygone days spent in the serenity of the Garry Bog near Ballymoney cutting turf and enjoying homemade scones or pancakes with apple jelly and time spent picking apples on the family farm”

Based at Portrush in County Antrim, Alastair teamed up with experienced chef Paul Clarke, the Managing Director of the award-winning En Place Foods at Cookstown in County Tyrone. In the recipe mix are Armagh Bramley Apples, cider, brandy, treacle and spices. They came up with something which draws together sweet and savoury – truly a versatile product and ‘a new taste of Ireland.’
