My son is always complaining when he has to make toast and the butter is hard,I do buy spreadable butter when it is on sale and that is very seldom.I was looking through another cook book and came upon this recipe for spreadable butter that will be less expensive and will last awhile longer.        1# of butter softened and  1 1/4 cup of canola oil  Beat the butter until soft and add the canola oil mixing well with a mixer.You could even use salt free butter if you are watching your salt intake.Store in refrigerator in a covered containeruntil ready  to use.

That's another recipe I NEED......... When I buy spreadable butter it gets old before I use it all. 
I already have lots of stick buttter (salt free thanks to this site) in my freezer and canola oil in the cupboard so I'm ready to go.
Thank you Gale .... thank you again.

You can add some honey or cinnamon to the butter for flavor as well.  It is good & cheaper than buying it premade.

I am looking for a "butter keeper" it is a holder for butter and it is inverted into a container that holds water.  The water forms an airtight seal so the butter can be kept at room temperature.
I like the idea of making the soft butter, should do well for corn on the cob. I love making the flavored spreads have done that many times.  Honey, cinnamon, cheese ...just limited by the imagination...

Nikki ,I think I know what you are talking about and I wouldn't mind having one myself.Maybe check with a hotel and restaurant supply if you have one in your area.I would keep my eyes open at Goodwill,all kinds of things show up there.

I recently saw a butter keeper (just like grandma had) in a catalog.  Which one?  Was it that King Arthur's?
It was a catlog of cooking supplies.

When my youngest son is home he always wants me to butter his toast, because I get the butter spread out to the edges. Spreadable butter is wonderful!

Thanks for the recipe.  My kids always complain when they rip the bread when trying to spread the butter.

"Butter Bells" may be ordered from Butterbell.com.  That is the official site for butter bells.  They are $24.00, and if you buy two, you receive one free.  Hope this helps you!

Darla, thanks for the info.  Hate spending that kind of money for something like that.  And the buy two get one how many butter bells does a person need?  I will keep looking at Goodwill and Salvation Army and the other resale shops in my area.  Just may take a pottery class this summer and make my own!

Great idea, thanks Gale.  I always forget to take the butter out ahead of time and it's always hard as a rock.
