spreadable butter is something that you need almost daily. everything is better with a cold schmear of butter, and this way it will be ready-to-go straight out of the fridge, without buying those trans-fat tub-o-butter-wannabes. this is another of those super simple recipes that just may change your life. it has mine.
schmeary spreadable butter
recipe from jenny carlsen
1 cup canola oil
1 cup butter (two sticks! pic just shows one. do as i say, not as i photograph.)
1/2 teaspoon salt
in your blender, measure a cup of oil to the 1 cup line. add in two sticks of butter and a pinch of salt. (ok, you could omit the salt, but i am a saltaholic and unapologetic.)
pour into a butter dish or a 2 cup tupperware and refrigerate until set. store in fridge.
use for pancakes, muffins, toast, rolls, cooking, whatever!
*in the summertime you may want to try a little less oil if your butter is melting too quickly at the dinner table. also feel free to make a smaller amount to try. just use even amounts of butter and oil. whatever kind of oil does it for you is fine.
