Butter But Better





I always make my own butter! Well, ALMOST! If you love the taste of real butter, but hate the way it spreads right out of the refrigerator (I should say the way it doesn't spread) and hate the calories as well, then today's tip is for YOU!

Start with a pound of regular butter from the store. I like to let it sit out on the counter for an hour to soften a bit first.




Now, cut it up into random pieces and place in your food processor. Add approximately one cup of oil (canola, olive, vegetable - your choice). Process it all until it is smooth.

Pour into individual containers and store in the refrigerator. Everyone who has ever tried this thinks it really is 100% REAL butter (and it IS - just modified!). Some have thought it to be "that expensive whipped butter".



The bonus is that is spreads right from the refrigerator with the real butter taste, but using the oil makes it at least a LITTLE less on the calories AND a little less expensive as well!

I even use it successfully to do all my baking.

I can't help but notice the hidden Mickey in your butter picture. :) This is a great idea - if only I used butter and/or margarine I would soo do this! I love your blog!!!
