In depth ramblings about cooking, homekeeping, and whatever else I decide to write about.
A butter bell is the number one on my wish list of kitchen tools. A butter bell is also known as a French butter dish. It is designed to keep butter fresh without refrigeration. It uses water, which is changed every three days, to seal the butter away from air, dirt, and germs for a month or more. Many people in Europe keep their butter this way. The advantage is that it keeps your butter nice and spreadable. I think about how quickly I could make cinnamon toast in the morning with one.
