Makes that butter stretch out so is nice on the budget.
But do not substitute this mixture in a recipe for cooking it won't work well. I use it for some sauteing and frying eggs etc.
- 2 c
- 1-3/4 c
- canola oil (other oils may work well some olive oils may have to strong a flavor)
- 1-1/2 tsp
- salt ( i use kosher) or to your taste.~ note i use sweet butter to start (unsalted) but think even with salted butter you might need some extra salt. do it to youtr tase.
- cinnamon and sugar... to taste
- herbs of choice
- dryed fruits
- lots of other possibilities. oh yes going to make some honey vanilla butter next batch to see how that is.
- if it looks too pale add a small drop of yellow food coloring.
ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS YOU CAN ADD
How to Make Spreadable Butter
- 1Allow the butter to soften completely, it needs to be very soft.
- 2Blend the butter, canola oil and salt. The key is whipping air into the butter to get it fluffy. You can I use a handheld Baun type stick mixer for this task.Or a hand mixer or blender or stand mixer would work as well.
- 3It is at this step I add things to flavor the butter. Herbs, garlic, fruit etc. Depending on what I am adding it can be by hand or with the mixer on. Usually do it in the container it is going in if it is just folded in.
- 4Pour into containers and refrigerate or freeze. It will keep the fridge as long as the expiration date on the butter you use. So I put in smaller containers and freeze some as usually there is just me at home.
- 5It will get thin if you leave it out, but will firm right back up in the refrigerator.
- 6Remember do not use in recipes won't work well. I do use it for cooking eggs and sauteing things calling for butter sometimes.
