Make Butter Spreadable

 I only eat butter on my toast and bread. I do not eat margarine for health reasons.  And, I really do not like the fact that butter is hard and unspreadable out of the refrigerator.  

Thankfully, there is a trick!  When I received a sample of Pompeian Extra Olive Oil as part of the program, I knew that I was going to show you how to make butter spreadable. 

You can get a bottle here.

There is just about nothing that tastes better than butter spread on fresh homemade bread.   I love spreading it on corn bread and on quick breads as well.

Since butter is generally rock solid when you remove it from the refrigerator, I have to leave it on the counter to get it to soften.

Since I prefer not to do that, I needed to learn how to make butter spreadable even if I stored it in the refrigerator. I know that I can buy spreadable butter in the grocery store but honestly it costs so much money that I knew there had to be a better way.

  1. Thanks for the tip! I am going to try this. Spreadable butter is expensive to buy in addition to the sticks of butter I need to cook! Does it last a while in a container though or do you have to use it up quick?
  2. I absolutely love this tip!  I like my butter spreadable but  I don't like to buy butters that are spreadable because weird chemicals were added to it.  I will definitely be doing this!
  3. What a great idea Ellen. I never would have guessed and always buy the spreadable butter because I can't stand rock hard butter. Lack of planning on my part usually means we don't get soft butter in our house. Thanks!

  5. This is such an awesome tip! I never would have thought to use olive oil that way. I don't like when butter comes out of the fridge all hard. It tears my bread apart. I'll remember to try this next time.
