My family has something of a love affair with butter. (You’re shocked. I can tell.) Now that the weather is cooling off, I’m baking bread more often. But I don’t always have the foresight to take the butter out of the fridge half an hour before my kids want to have a hunk of bread.
After doing some research, I determined that what I wanted to get was a “butter bell,” a butter dish you fill with water that can be left out on the counter. (The water keeps the butter from spoiling. Change the water every couple of days and the butter stays fresh and soft, or so the internet claims.) I figured that the cheapest place to grab one would be eBay, so I did some searching there, but guess what! I am not paying $20 for a butter dish!
And then I found this Norpro butter bell for $7.90 shipped. That I will do.
I shall have to report back on its butterliciousness. But in the meantime, if you’ve been searching for one of those, that seems to be a pretty decent deal.
