Brown Butter is a more complex, deeply toasted version of whole butter. Black & Bolyard precisely cooks and caramelizes Grassfed, non-GMO butter from upstate New York. The milk solids naturally present in the whole butter are browned in the butterfat before being infused, seasoned, and whipped. Brown Butter can replace whole butter anywhere that it is typically used, while its intense depth of flavor should be enjoyed in savory and sweet applications.
We encourage you to use Black & Bolyard Brown Butter in the same places you already use whole butter. It has been lightly seasoned with Sea Salt making it perfect for savory and sweet cooking. Schmear it on bread, Melt it on meat & vegetables, Sauce it on pasta, and Bake it into cookies. Be sure to check out our recipes for inspiration.
Black & Bolyard Brown Butter is best if used within 1 Year after opening. Through our unique caramelization process, all of the water naturally present in the whole butter is cooked out before deeply toasting the butterfat at high temperatures. This process dramatically increases our shelf-life and surpasses that of normal butter.

Since our butter is Grassfed, it is naturally high in heart-healthy Vitamin K2 and Omega-3 fatty acids. Also, our high-quality, Non-GMO butter is rich in Beta Carotene which converts to Vitamin A in our bodies. View our Nutritional Facts.
Grassfed Butter is often regarded as the healthiest type of butter you should consume due to the high concentration of healthy fats and fatty acids found in it. Grassfed Butter is made from the milk of cows that are left on the pasture for the majority of the year to eat primarily a grass-based diet. This affects the flavor and color of the butter produced from their milk, usually yielding a more rich and yellow butterfat. Black & Bolyard always uses Grassfed butter.
Non-GMO means that no GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) were used in growing and making the product. GMOs are organisms whose genetic makeup has been altered through mutation, insertion, or deletion of genes. The butter that Black & Bolyard uses is always non-GMO.
Black & Bolyard Brown Butter is naturally gluten free, soy free, nut free, and vegetarian.
It’s simple—“Black and Bowl-yard”. Our logo mark represents the first bowl we used to whip our Brown Butter for Tasting Society, our Brooklyn-based Supper Club and also happens to be a nice way to help sound out our last names (black bowl = Black & Bolyard)
