A few weeks ago I learned something interesting. One of my sister-in-laws keeps her butter in a kitchen cabinet. Real butter, not margarine, as in Land O’ Lakes butter.
I did not know you could do that. I thought all dairy type products had to be kept in the fridge or it would spoil.
Maybe it is a Northern or Yankee thing? My brother-in-law is from Buffalo, NY and they’ve lived up there for years. I’ve never known anyone to keep real butter anywhere but in the fridge.
I was at my SIL’s house and looking for butter for Hubby’s toast. I couldn’t find it in the fridge so I asked Terri, my BIL’s sister, if she knew where it was. Her exact words to me were “If we were in New York I’d say look in the pantry or a kitchen cabinet.”
Voila, there the butter was! My SIL’s explanation is that your house is climate controlled with air conditioning. It won’t spoil. Plus then you don’t have to wait for it to soften before using it!!
I learned something new and kinda cool. So where do you store your butter? In the fridge or pantry/cabinet?
