Can butter be kept on the counter so it’s always soft?
We recommend keeping butter refrigerated, which follows USDA and FDA guidelines. To soften butter for spreading, take butter out at least 30-60 minutes prior to use, but no more than four hours ahead. For butter that is spreadable right out of the refrigerator, try Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil available in a variety of tub sizes. It is easy to spread – no need to soften!
