Butter Spread

This is a great recipe that allows you to make your butter last a bit longer! This can be kept at room temperature, if you want it super spreadable, or in the fridge. We prefer to keep ours in the fridge, since it is still spreadable, and softens (or melts) quickly on warm items. It spreads easily on pancakes, bagels, toast etc. I think it tastes pretty much like butter, and it is way better than the spreads you buy in the store (in my opinion :) It also is fantastic for grilled sandwiches (cheese, tuna, etc) because it gives the bread a bit more crispiness.

Butter Spread
2 cubes of butter (1 cup), at room temperature
1/2 cup canola oil (can use olive oil for a stronger flavor)
1/2 cup water

Using an electric mixer on "HI", whip the butter until it is really light and fluffy. While mixer is still going, slowly add oil. When all of oil is incorporated, slowly add water. Mixture will be white (not the usual yellow color of spread!) and fluffy. Put in fridge until set up. Enjoy!
