Butter or Margarine?

Real butter is perhaps the most useful and divine concoction ever created.
Real margarine is not.

'Nuff said.

Butter all the way, I never use margarine. I worked at a place that made the shit. Just add water, oil, colouring and flavoring and whip the shit out of it and you have margarine....*yuk*

Whatever. I really can't tell the difference so I use margarine. I'm not too picky.

Butter is the way to go, better flavor, and you typically use less of it because the flavor is stronger and better so it ends up being better for you in my opinion.

Margarine is made by taking relatively healthy fatty acid and saturating them with hydrogen so that they have all the negatives of butter without the flavor. Therefor, if you are going to use it, go with the butter.

Yep, butter, it's a no-brainer!
Up here in Quebec, there's some law, to "protect" the butter/dairy industry, that makes butter-coloured margarine illegal, if you can believe it. The thinking is that if they look the same, we the consumer will be too stupid to know the diff.
So margarine here is just off-white in colour, like, well, congealed fat, more or less. Gross looking <i>and</i> tasting, blech!!

Butter is one of the most sacred elements of cooking.

I don't even want to express my opinion of margarine.

Definately butter. You just don't get the flavour with margarine. I usually get it at Sam's Club, because it's so much cheaper. Butter freezes really well, so it's not a problem having 4 pounds in the house.

If you're using a recipe that calls for a lot of clarified butter, see if you can find an Indian grocery that sells jars of ghee. It's not that expensive, and It's pretty much just clarified butter. Saves a bunch of time.

If you're concerned about your health, get some more exercise. Margarine isn't that much if at all better for you, and it tastes like crap. Enjoy life. [grin].

salted butter, any day.

Margarine is vile and does not react nearly the same in cooking.,

Doesn't really matter to me. I only use it for cooking (don't spread it on bread unless it is garlic bread) so I usually have butter at home. But I also use margarine and I don't mind either...

Pretty easy choice! Few things have the taste of butter.
Warm bread with butter is oh so good, and on corn! toast! baked Potatoe, the list goes on and on.

Butter for me. Margarine has way too much water. It doesnt cook right and it makes toast soggy.

Olive oil.

Butter's better than margerine for most things, but margerine is usually more convenient that butter. In my house, anyway.
