XXL Butter

2008-03-20@17-59-45

Butter in Yichang has risen in price to 11.50? per 125gram ($1.60 per stick). This makes baking expensive.

So, when I go to our provincial capital, I buy a 5KG block of butter, which comes out to a marginally better price of 9.12? per 125grams.

Once I manage to get the big block home, I take it over to a local bakery and use their digital scale to cut the block into 40-1cup portions. I get lots of stares on the way — tall foreigner walking across campus with an enormous block of butter and a large knife. 30 minutes later our freezer is stocked with butter.

Once again, I have the feeling of living on the frontier…stocking up on supplies once or twice a season.

Total savings: $13.
