I found this recipe/tip on a message board last summer and have been making it ever since. Note-This butter is not suited for baking needs.
Our ingredients are:
1/2 cup of lukewarm water per stick of butter (1/4 pound)
1 softened stick of butter
I do two sticks of butter at a time and 1 cup of water.
Start by whipping butter with hand mixer or a stand mixer (if you are soooo lucky to have one :p). Slowly pour in a small amount of water. Mix until water is not visible. Repeat the process until you have used all or most of your water. This butter resembles the whipped butter I have seen at restaurants and I do not refrigerate it.
