Butter Butter Butter


I love butter, no I mean I LOVE butter. Not a big fan of Margarine. Especially after I found out that it's actually a terrible gray color before they add things to make it yellow. I mean, would you eat it if it came in the original gray color....I think not. Read about some of the Evils of Margarine here.... This Is Your Brain On Margarine

Anyway

This morning I was making toast and of course when you take the butter out of the fridge it's IMPOSSIBLE to spread without destroying your bread. So I Googled "How long can I keep butter out before it goes rancid?" and here's what I found out.

Butter usually can be kept out for several days without going rancid (salted butter will keep longer because salt acts as a preservative). Exactly how long butter will stay fresh at room temperature depends on how much heat and light it gets and whether it’s wrapped.

One thing I had that worked out great was this Butter crock. You replace the water in it every 3 days and your butter can stay out for a month...LOVED IT! It was under $20.00 and well worth it. I posted a widget below...check it out. You'll thank me later :)

Some of you might say....Ohhhh butter is bad, cholesterol, fattening...I say SHUT UP!! Eat in moderation dammit and enjoy the wonder that is butter!

I also made a video a while ago showing 2 ways you can double your butter....here's the link  Butter Video
