Butter gets the brush-up / News / The Foreigner

Butter gets the brush-up. Norwegians are turning to a new way to make butter as the country continues to be affected by shortages. The recipe consists of putting sour cream and cream together, adding salt, and then putting the ingredients into a paint-mixing machine for 20 minutes. “It worked well. It is perhaps a little soft but it will correct itself after standing in the refrigerator,” Marten Nilsen from Berg Farge in Lofoten Islands’ capital Svolvær told NRK

The recipe consists of putting sour cream and cream together, adding salt, and then putting the ingredients into a paint-mixing machine for 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, far from the polar bears, there are also fears the butter famine could spoil sauces and mashed swede, as well as prevent the traditional rice porridge preparation.

“TINE has sent us a message saying they are concerned there may be a problem delivering all the cream needed for Christmas,” Ica Norway’s communications manager, Bjørn Takle Friis, said to Aftenposten.

Other supermarket chains Rema 1000, Coop and the NorgesGruppen have not received the same information, however, and personnel believe TINE will come through. 

Elisabeth Morthen, TINE’s communications director, declares, “We have not reduced cream production to create extra butter. We have produced normal amounts of cream, more than last year, in fact, since consumption has increased.”
