We have all been in the situation where we have forgotten to take the butter out of the fridge to soften.
You try to soften it in the microwave but that never works.
This food hack will give you softened butter in a matter of minutes.
Step 1: First Off Boil the Kettle.
Fill a glass or a mug with hot water.
Once the glass is warm to the touch, pour out the water and dry the glass.
The glass is now nice and warm.
Step 2: Place It Upside Down Over the Butter.
Let it sit for 2 to 3 minutes.
The longer you leave it the softer the butter will become.
Step 3: Now the Butter Is Nice and Soft and Ready to Be Used.
From buttering toast to make a simple garlic and mustard butter for a steak.
This has gotten me out of jam more time than I can count.
