Get Soft, Spreadable Butter In Just 2 Minutes
In many kitchens, the same drama plays out every morning: on the way to the kitchen you remember that you've forgotten to take the butter out of the fridge so that it can soften up. Now you've got the choice: try and smear hard clumps of butter on your bread, did a hole in the butter, or put the butter in the microwave, where it melts all over the place. But wait! There is another way: a little water and a glass will save your day.
Now you're probably thinking: "I could just put the glass in the microwave to heat it up". Right? Unfortunately, no. This makes the glass too hot and melts the butter, which is exactly what you don't want. But at least our method has saved your morning.
