How to make Real Soft Butter Spread, for your homemade pantry.

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I am a big fan of real food. Healthy food equals a happy family. But honestly, I also like a bit of convenience, like soft butter to spread on a slice of bread. That one, especially in winter is a hard one. So after more than a few ripped pieces of buttered bread, I came up with a solution....

Homemade soft butter. No artificial anything, just real food. This butter is also great for frying eggs and topping your oatmeal with a dab if you enjoy your porridge that way (we do). Straight out of the refrigerator, you will need to scrape a ribbon of butter off the top (it is real food after all), instead of cutting off a slice.

But honestly, we do not refrigerate our butter, and we have never had an issue with it spoiling. I keep a small bowl of softened butter in the pantry right next to the salt and pepper.

  1. Oh what a great post. I love butter! Especially soft! Thanks for sharing this. I hope you'll come over and link at The Fabulous Party. This weeks link is over here:
    Link up and 'spread' the Love. HeHe!

  2. This looks interesting, I've never made my own butter.

    1. I have made butter, (and the leftover buttermilk is perfect for baking with) but this is just whipping butter into a soft spread. But it is nice, not to have torn bread...

  3. I am excited to have this recipe, I love homemade butter. Hope you are having a great day and thanks so much for sharing with us at Full Plate Thursday.

  4. I'll have to give this a try! Hard butter is a huge pet peeve! Thanks for sharing on the Homesteader Hop!

    1. It was a problem at our house also, not not so much. This spreads easy and you can spread it thinner, which is also nice.

  5. Good idea. We have to keep our butter in the fridge or else we'd just have a puddle. Oh the joys of living in Florida. I've not thought about adding oil to make it softer. We'll have to try this. Thanks for sharing on the Waste Less Wednesday Blog Hop!
