I’m requesting advice from you. It involves butter.
I’m being slowly convinced I need to let go of my obsession with the super-cheap Imperial margarine and make a healthier choice. I want to go with butter. Real butter. Butter made with milk that hasn’t been treated with growth hormones.
The problem is the price. I’ve been getting suggestions for where to buy and have been told real butter freezes beautifully, but then someone suggested I make my own butter.
I’m not sure I’m ready to go all Ma Ingalls with the butter, and I know I need to buy a blender if I head this direction.
I’ve burned up the motors in four blenders in the almost-eight years we’ve been married. And the motor in a mix master. I’m a small appliance murderer.
And, yet, I feel the need to move. To change the current way of business. So I need your butter secrets.
- Do you use real butter? Which brand(s) do you recommend?
- Have you made your own butter? How long does it keep? Can it be frozen?
- Do you store your butter in the fridge or at room temperature? What type of container do you use?
- What do I need to be thinking about as we change out buttery habits?
Thank you for your input!!
In other news, I’d like to mention I ate water buffalo chili for dinner tonight. It was delicious. I don’t feel like wallowing in water or charging anyone or anything else that seems typical of a water buffalo, so I have decided to recommend the meat to any an all carnivores who may be listening.
