A lot of people store butter in the refrigerator, it tends to last longer if it’s cold. However, keeping butter in the fridge makes it hard and difficult to spread. An easy fix is to store your butter in a butter crock. Butter crocks make butter soft and spreadable, and have been used since the late 19th century. They are wonderful to have on your counter if you use butter often, and can even keep butter fresh up to 30 days! Sometimes you can find them at the Goodwill or Salvation Army, and my husband is selling some on Ebay.
How to Use: It’s simple!
- Pack one stick of butter into the lid of the crock.
- Pour cold water into crock base, about 1/3 full.
- Place lid of crock into crock base.
- Use soft butter on toast, pancakes, french toast, baked potatoes, biscuits, waffles, corn, grilled cheese sandwiches, muffins, bagels, and more!
