Re: A Question About Butter

When I was a kid my mom left the butter out on the counter (in a glass container with a lid) for possibly weeks on end. She never kept it in the fridge. As for myself, I keep it in the fridge all of the time. This issue doesn't arise too often for me because I can't think of many things that I actually spread butter on to. I don't eat plain pieces of bread or toast with a meal. I guess the only time I really spread butter is for making grilled cheese sandwiches or egg in a baskets (or eggs in a basket?). Mostly I use the butter for cooking. However, if I do need it to soften then I just plan ahead and let it sit out on the counter for about 15 minutes before spreading.
