Tried it this morning: it worked like a charm, much better than the micro method.

I just let mine sit out at room temp. Been doing that for years and years. Only exception is now, in the summer, I put it in fridge during the day, take it out at night so it's soft for breakfast!

We do the same, but often forget to take it out at night, so the hint is very helpful.

What I've usually done is scrape some up with the edge of a butter knife. Exposing it to more air...it's worked pretty good also! But, using a grater or micro plane is a great idea.

Yes, I agree. Especially if I want to use the butter again later that day!

Elnina, that's a great tip. I've never thought of using it that way. I'll be trying it very soon. Thanks!

I don't refrigerate butter so it's never hard in my home.

No, I LOVE cold, hard globs! I think the taste is more prominent when it's cold, it's saltier and creamier (if that makes sense). When butter gets warm, it just tastes oily to me.

Thanks for the tip Elnina!
