How to unmelt butter … kitchen helper


Whoops! Someone left the butter out. If you find your butter is oversoft and a bit melty there is an easy way to quickly restore it to a solid form.

You can revive over-softened butter by giving it an ice bath. Place the butter in a small bowl, and place the small bowl inside a larger bowl filled with a few handfuls of ice. Give the butter a gentle stir and leave to sit for a few minutes and you’ll find that it quickly firms up.
