How To Make Your Own Spreadable Butter

In our house we use real butter. I used to use spreads that I thought were healthier but surprise, butter is not bad for us! So ever since, it has been real butter. The only bad part was that it was not spreadable. I started buying spreadable butter but that costs a lot more for very little and with our big family, we were flying through those small tubs. Looking for a solution, I learned that butter does not need to be kept in the refrigerator to stay fresh. That’s right, when you use a butter pot, you can have nice spreadable butter anytime you want without paying extra for those tubs in the supermarket.



If you are wondering what a butter pot is, it is a pot that has a lid that you pack the butter into and then you add cold water to the base. You leave it out on the counter at room temperature and all you have to do is change the water every 3-4 days and replace the butter as needed.


The French have been storing their butter like this for years. The water creates an airtight seal that will keep butter fresh for up to 30 days but you know what, it never lasts that long without refilling in our house!

    That’s such a nice butter dish- so much fancier than just the squares of butter! I also really like the Emile Henry Large Salad Bowl, Blue Flame!

    I would like to get some Pasta bowls. I have to admit that i did not know what a pasta bowl was until I looked on the Emile & Henry website. Now I understand it and I want some.

    I currently have a butter pot, but it just does not do a good job. It is like the store brand for Bed,Bath & Beyond. It drips water, and it is a must to change the water every 3 days. An Emily Henry Butter Pot can only be great like all their products.

  16. Jennifer Essad

    I’d love to have the Fish Steamer with the lid – so many uses for this as well

  17. Vickie

    I am a huge huge fan of Emile Henry and have a pizza stone now that I love!
    It would be a dream to have everything in their line of high quality stoneware.
    I’d like either the bread maker or chicken roaster next..then fish steamer!

  18. Donna

    I love the Emile Henry site! They have so many cool baking products and I love the baking tips and recipes on their Facebook page too, I have a pie pan and their bread cloche that I love. They made quality stoneware items !
