So, what is manteiga?

Manteiga is a rich and creamy ingredient commonly used in Portuguese cuisine. Known in English as butter, manteiga is made by churning cream or milk until the fat globules separate from the liquid. This process creates a smooth and spreadable product that is perfect for baking, cooking, and adding flavor to dishes. Manteiga has a distinctive taste and aroma that can range from mild to nutty, depending on the type of milk used and the production process. Whether used as a cooking fat or as a finishing ingredient, manteiga is an essential component of many delicious dishes.
