DIY: Whipped Butter (from A Little Bit Crunchy A Little Bit Rock and Roll)
1 pound salted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup warm water*
glass jars for storing
mixer with whip attachment
1. Add the sticks of butter to your mixer and whip on high speed.
2. Gradually add the 1/2 cup of warm water. (Don't try and use cold water, your room temperature butter will seize up on you.)
3. Whip the butter for about 5 minutes on medium/high speed until it is light and fluffy.
4. Store in glass jars.
*If you'd like to make a smaller amount of butter, the ratio is 2 tablespoons warm water to 1 stick butter.
(As with all real butter, this butter is easiest to spread at room temperature.)
