My Butter Mix

Enjoy the taste of butter with only half the saturated fat. This easy mixture is always soft and spreadable, so handy to have around for cooking, baking, and greasing pans. - Jenny Jones

    I stopped buying spreadable butter and now make my own with canola oil,or light extra virgin olive oil. Homemade version has considerably less salt and is more economical, we buy quality butter on sale and freeze. Thank you!
