How to Cut Butter

Perhaps this is too basic for my esteemed target market, or perhaps not. I struggled with how to cut my Mooville butter into quarters so I could use it better in recipes – or on Michigan popcorn. It comes in a one pound block. This butter is so good, it is worth a blog on how I cut it for use. The issue was that shards of the butter would stick to the knife when I cut it into quarters. I find the quarters easier to use, since many recipes use a Tablespoon measure.

The important thing is to use a sharp knife and to put it into the freezer to chill it. Be sure to set it in a spot where no one will get hurt on it when they open up the door. I chill my knife about one half hour, and then I cut the butter in half. I clean the knife and chill it again for one half hour before cutting the halves into quarters.

I wrap the quarters in plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator. I have a photo copy of an old butter quarter wrap that has Tablespoon measurements – or I just figure it by eye. Can’t have too much butter, right? I hope this works for you too. Use MI Facebook page to send us all your cooking tips.
