My mom told me this. I did it 2 days ago and its great!! Saves money!!!

1 stick room temp butter. I stuck it in a wide mouth pint mason jar. Mash it up with a fork. Mix well with 1/2 cup light tasting olive oil (you *can* use canola or some other oil, but I am trying to avoid that). Place in fridge to set.

I whisked this batch but it wasnt a completely uniform consistency. It spread and tasted just fine but had tiny little chunks of butter so I will try making it in the food processor next time.

Genius!

I'm going to try with 1/2C coconut oil for our bagels in the morning.

Thanks for this.

We do the same thing except we use walnut oil. Works great!

Re: How to make spreadable butter...

Just out of curiosity, why don't you just keep a stick or two of butter in a dish in the cabinet or on the counter? Then it's spreadable without you adding anything to it.

I have a french butter crock that stays on the counter with butter on it so it stays soft and is sealed by water. I love my butter crock

Going to have to try this. I don't leave butter out because we do unsalted often and it goes rancid quickly in our warm toasty house with a fire going.
