    Ok.. Im a big butter fan but recently have found that chizzling away at the Country Life in the morning does not leave me with much time for anything else.

    Im looking for a "Straight from the fridge" spread which is as close to butter as you can get without the real thing.

    Thanks.

    Was not sure if the "Spreadable" Variations were upto much.

    I think Lurpak is 80% butter and 20% marge, its the best I have tasted really. They are all a bit :-/.

    Just keep your butter at room temp?

    don't leave your butter in the fridge, perhaps?

    Room temperature is fine for butter.

    beaten to it, however i thought that if you like your butter from the fridge, pre slice it before you refridgerate it.

    Bingo

    butter isn't really made to be kept in the fridge. You just get a pool of butter in the morning if it gets too hot when its elsewhere.

    I thought of that but did not think it was possible due to food safety etc?

    Will be ah'reet, if it goes bad you don't eat enough butter/fat and therefore you are a southern fag. ;)

    As for spreadable butter, I just look at the labels and pick whichever has the highest butter % I guess. Lurpak is higher than Anchor last I looked (and they were the only two in the shop), I'm sure there's better. Country Life is yummy. :)

    This thread reminds me of that bit from Withnail and I:

    "This wasn't the impression I had been given about Country Folk, I thought they'd all be round the back, drinking cider, discussing butter; clearly a myth..."

    My Dad has never put butter in the fridge and he will be 65 this year - perfectly safe :)

    Yes, you should. Then you should play the Withnail & I drinking game, you can skip the lighterfluid because you're a first timer but second time round you gotta go hardcore. ;)


    PS, where does one apply for ownership?
