Chef’s Tip: September 2015

Hard butter?

How many times have you gone to bake cookies or a cake & realized you forgot to take your butter out of the refrigerator & it is rock hard? You are probably incredibly impatient, just like us and end up turning to the microwave and accidentally melting it.

Rather than waiting for it to soften, simple grate the butter on your box grater – the same side you would use to grate your cheddar cheese. Spread out the fluffy shards of butter on a plate and they’ll soften up even before you have the rest of your ingredients measured out.

If you are making biscuits, scones or a pie crust simply add the frozen grated butter to your recipe for amazing results.
