Butter Crocks

Friday, February 19, 2010

A friend of mine had a butter crock sitting on her table one afternoon when I went for a visit.  I had no idea what a butter crock was, but she soon told me!  My family always complains because I only buy sticks of butter...no tubs of the soften stuff (that really isn't butter anyways!).  They were tired of the bread getting torn up when they put the hard butter on it.  Well, a butter crock solves that problem!  Butter crocks can be left on the counter and will keep butter fresh for several weeks!  Your butter is always soft and won't go bad! Here is a diagram of what the inside of a butter crock looks like....

The water keeps the butter from being exposed to air so that it won't spoil.  I have read that you do need to change the water weekly and that the butter will be fresh for a month in the crock!  I bought my crock on Amazon.com.  Take a look as they come in all kinds of shapes and colors.

Doe the butter really stay soft? I have seen them but never used the crocks. (In fact my MIL used to have one, but I never saw it in action)

Sheri- Yes, the butter is actually soft! We have been using it for about a week and it is so handy! I think my only problem will be remembering to refill it!
