Jim absolutely MUST have real butter, not margarine, on his breakfast toast that he eats every. single. day. He can’t spread it unless it’s soft, so he used to leave it out on a plate unrefrigerated, which drove me crazy. My friend Kelly came to the rescue and sent me this perfect little solution:
It’s called a butter bell, and it works perfectly. You pack a stick of butter into the lid/top, put cold water in the bottom, and it will keep butter safely at room temp for up to 30 days by using an airtight seal. You can find out more & order one for you (or for gifts) here.
