Softening butter quickly isn’t so easy when it’s just been taken out of the fridge and it’s frozen-hard. This valuable advice from Natalie could make your butter serving far more convenient!
How to Soften Butter Quickly
Cut It into Chunks – Cutting the butter into chunks will help it soften much more quickly than leaving it as a whole stick. Get the butter out first, before gathering all of the other ingredients and equipment you need, and cut the hard butter into thin chunks. I even slice it and then cut each chunk in half. It takes just a few seconds, and by the time I’ve gotten everything all together, it’s usually softened and ready for use. Tip: Leave it next to the preheating oven or stove and it will soften even more quickly!
Now if you’re a gadget girl, you might want to check out the Butter ‘N Slice Container. It even has teaspoon, tablespoon and ounce measurements making it super easy to get the exact amount you need…which of course is important in baking!
If you’re a gadget girl like me, you might want to get this Butter Knife that grates, slices, and curls butter! But if you don’t use butter as often, you can just get a Butter Keeper that allows you to safely leave butter out of the fridge. A butter keeper has special designs that uses water to seal out all air which keeps the butter soft and fresh for up to 30 days, without refrigeration.
Others say to put it into the blender or your KitchenAid stand mixer but that seems pretty messy too, unless you’re also using the mixer to make your recipe!
It’s always great to share your skills with others, and who knows? You might learn one or two things!
