    Default Rancid butter

    I like day old popcorn and skunky beer.

    That's all I have to say for the time being.

    If there's anything worse than bong water to spill on your couch it might be rancid butter.
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I just like it because you get to say saponification.

    I hate it because if we have soap, I have to wash up. Even behind my ears...

    If I make cookies with 2 sticks of butter (not rancid), then I eat half the cookies, does that mean I just ate one stick of butter. Or does some of it evaporate in the baking process?

    Some of it evaporates, I'm sure.

    Avalon doesn't have a ballroom. But it did have John Hurt.

    I grew up in a butter in the fridge family. But then I was taught the error of my ways now the butter is on the kitchen counter were it belongs.

    I was lost but now I'm found, was blind but now I see.

    We are a butter-on-the-counter household, as well.

    We have a 'problem'.

    A First-World problem.

    We buy our butter from Costco, and Costco butter is made into short, fat sticks, not long skinny sticks.

    I have tried to find a butter dish where the lid doesn't touch the butter, but no joy.

    We typically cut a 'gambrel roof' sort of shape on each new stick, but . . .

    How shall I find a dish that fits Costco butter?

    Even Costco doesn't carry them!

    Oh, and I want a glass butter dish, so I can see what's going on with the stray butter, so I can clean it off before it goes rancid.

    I'm with you Paul!

    Ken likes unsalted butter and does a lot of the grocery shopping. Without the salt it just doesn't seem right.

    He grew up on a dairy farm and thinks he knows all things dairy! Meh! give me salted butter anyday!

    I do like a little butter in my coffee when it's a cold morning or right before I work out. It works well when sailing on a cold and wet day with very small splash of whiskey or run in a espresso press.

    Mom used to churn all our butter back when we kept a cow... she forgot to salt it once and sat down and cried

    My grandparents on the farm made sour cream butter. I suppose they sold the fresh cream. In any event, my mother-- a city girl-- found it revolting.

    Grampa, a Swede, brought lutefisk home one. Gramma found it revolting and told him that he had to eat it in the barnyard if he was going to eat it. She would not have the stinky stuff in the house
