Goodbye cold, hard and crumbly butter.
If you've never heard of a butter bell then do we have news for you!
This little unassuming crock is the answer to all of your brittle butter misery.
It was invented by the French in the late 19th century to keep butter fresh at room temperature for days on end.
When you have that many croissants to butter up, nobody's got time to wait around for a 20 minute melting session am I right?
We're talking smooth, creamy dreamy butter - all day every day.
That means you can smother up your morning bagel faster than we can say Bon Appetit.
How, you ask?
Make sure the butter bell is washed and dried well.
Top off the bell with 1 stick softened butter at room temp.
Fill the base with cool water.
Turn the bell over into the water. The water creates an airtight seal so butter stays fresh without refrigeration.
To serve, simply lift out the bell and set it lid-side down. Butter up buttercup.
P.s. To keep it super fresh, add a little salt or vinegar to the water, and refresh it every 2-3 days.
