A butter bell.
Are you confused? Stick with me on this one.
Remember my post about the Salt Pig? And how my life was changed forever?? Over a Salt Pig?
Well, my heart is swooning over a butter bell now.
A Butter bell (or butter “crock”) is a pottery crock/bowl that holds the butter and keeps it fresh.
On your counter. GASP!
And here is how it works. You put the butter in the top part, and pour a certain amount of water in the bottom bowl.
The butter stays soft, but not melted everywhere.
I admit when I do leave my butter on the counter now in the long butter dish it gets melted and messy.
But still nice and smooth…umm…smooth like butter.
Now, my husband and I have the big butter debate. I leave it out on the counter for days. Then I go to get it to spread on my nice warm english muffin…. and where is the butter? Back in the fridge. Put there by the butter police.
So honey…. if I get a Butter Bell, can I please leave the butter on the counter??
What say you ?
Do you leave your butter on the counter? Think it’s gross?
Ever heard of a Butter Bell?
Don’t you think it will change our lives if we had one?
