Christmas Crisis: Butter Shortage in Sweden

Butter shortage – good news as long as I have butter in my fridge!

Bad news: there will be a butter shortage in Sweden this winter season.

Good news: it’s mainly because the fat phobia that has had a grip on people for decades is rapidly fading, meaning that people feel comfortable eating more healthy, natural fat.

    We had a butter shortage last Christmas in Canada. Butter had to be imported in to cover the demand. I buy butter in advance and freeze it. I also make my own butter from heavy cream so unless that is not available, I am good.
