How much is a stick of butter?

You have been looking at those American cooking websites again, haven't you? American butter is sold in pound and half pound packs each divided into quarter pound units called sticks. One stick weighs 110 grams. Butter there is pale white as US cows are mostly raised in barns and don't get to eat grass which is full of beta carotene – it makes butter yellow. US cows may be given hormones to make them lactate longer. A stick of butter is perfect for deep frying as Abel 'Fried Jesus' Gonzales jnr proved at the 2009 State Fair of Texas when he won the most creative food prize for his novel buttery treat. God bless America.
