I hate getting anything greasy on my hands. That includes moisturizer, sunscreen, olive oil, margarine, and butter. Until recently I had reserved myself to living a life of dry toast and flavourless corn-on-the-cob, but then a one-trick kitchen gadget came along with exactly the one-trick I desperately wanted.
Ten kilos. Ten kilos of butter. Two thousand years old. I just…yeah. Here you go.
A 2000-year-old orb of butter weighing 10kg was recently discovered in Co Meath, Ireland. Ancient butter experts believe that it was once offering to the gods. It’s also “theoretically… still edible” according to Andy Halpin, one of the Irish National Museums’ assistant keepers. Not a chance, Andy!
