It's a scientific fact butter does not require refrigeration. We've done the research and the USDA agrees butter is the only dairy product that's safe to eat when kept at room temperature. This is due to its high fat percentage and lack of water content. Without water, there is no opportunity for mold or bacteria to grow.
Many people are completely unaware of this life-changing fact. Unless you grew up with your grandma keeping her butter on the counter or heard about it from a friend, you'd have no clue. In fact, nearly 50% of Americans have "no idea" that butter doesn't require refrigeration.
So if this is breaking news to you, trying keeping your butter on the counter. Once you experience mornings with soft, spreadable butter, you won't go back!
