How Could I Have Remained Unaware Of This Until Now???
Maybe I’m just late to the party, but this butter keeper is the greatest thing since the baguette. Never let your fresh bread lose an argument with hard butter again…this crock stores a cube of butter at room temperature while preserving it. You soften the butter, fill that little cup, fill the crock about 1/4 full with water, invert the cup into the crock, and your butter is sealed from air. When you want to use it, just turn right side up and you have a nice little serving dish. (Just change the water every few days.)
