Homemade, organic, spreadable butter

I’ve always wondered if homemade, spreadable butter was easy to do or if it required some kind of effort that simply wasn’t feasible without a ton of equipment and a small farm. I found a small hack and Laura and I have been making this homemade, spreadable, organic butter ever since! Its super easy and only requires a blender. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Take 250 g of organic butter and leave it out for a few hours until it is soft
  2. Put the butter in a bowl and pour in 1.75 dl of Grapeseed Oil(look for this in your supermarket, should be there)
  3. Add a nice pinch of salt
  4. Take an immersion blender and mix it together until the oil and butter are indistinguishable and well-mixed
  5. Pour the mixture into a container and put it in the fridge until it hardens
  6. Use it!!

The butter has a really nice, smooth taste that is certainly caused by the grapeseed oil. Sometimes, I’ll taste a small spoonful because its sooo good! We use it on everything including bread and corn on the cob. If you want to make homemade rye bread, check out how we did that here: http://daneshea.com/delicious-home-baked-ecologic-rye-bread/ As you can see in the pictures we used Laura’s grandma’s old butter container that she inherited :D, nothing more sustainable than passing things down in generations 😀 but more on that later…

Quick note: It stays good for a little over a month. Also, if you leave it out for too long the oil and butter will separate, make sure to throw it back in the fridge right away after use.
