Country Butter (Soft Spread)

Country Butter (Soft Spread) created by Kats Mom

A creamy, tasty and budget-stretching butter mixture. At one time my hubby & I had seven children living with us! In an effort to cut expenses I bought a book called Cheaper & Better (Homemade Alternatives To Storebought Goods). This recipe for a soft spread quickly became a family favorite. Tattered and stained, this is the page to which the book still falls open.

    DH & I agreed to negotiate disputes & compromise when we married. The long-debated issue of real butter vs the fake stuff has been our 1 failure! I have spent a lifetime using real butter & long ago abandoned the idea of giving it up. Over time, DH became more militant about it & then I saw your recipe. I was not interested in budget issues. I wanted a butter truce & this tasted good to me. Iceland does not have butter products that mirror the U.S. It has a hard creamery type I see as real butter + a ghastly water-based spread I cannot abide, but also a hybrid of the 2 called Smjorvi. I used Smjorvi + olive oil instead of corn oil & the buttermilk to make a 1/4 recipe as a taste test, but will be making full batches now. Thx for posting this recipe for us.
