Stop me if you've heard this one before. Did you know that you can freeze butter? Stores are having major sales on baking items right now and it's okay to stock up on this kitchen staple.
But how can you thaw it once you're ready to use it?
You can put it out on the counter for a quick thaw, or let it sit in the refrigerator for a more gradual thaw.
But if you need it immediately, there is a solution. You can use your cheese grater to grate the butter. The smaller pieces soften faster. It's a better alternative than using your microwave, which can alter the taste and consistency of the product.
This is a pretty neat trick, and if you haven't tried it I recommend doing so!
Moms, what is your favorite kitchen shortcut?
