Better Butter

The price of butter keeps going up, but I don’t want to use “fake stuff”.  So I buy lots of butter when it’s on sale ($2 a pound) and I make some of it into Better Butter, which is very similar to margarine except that it’s homemade with more natural ingredients.  It’s much more spreadable than butter and my kids really like the taste.  Yes, I do add a little salt as we like that taste better.  From 2 cups of butter, you get 4 cups of Better Butter.

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup canola oil
1/4 tsp lecithin (optional)
2 Tbs water
2 Tbs dry milk powder
pinch of salt

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend well.  Pour into a seal-able container and store in refrigerator.  I linked the lecithin so you can read up on it and decide whether or not you want to use it.
