Leaving Butter Out at Room Temp?

allegro805 | Jan 9, 2007 03:29 PM

Anyone else out there leave their butter out (in a covered dish) for days or weeks at a time?

I started doing this after talking to a coworker who does it, and it makes perfect sense. Nothing I hate more than trying to spread ROCK hard butter on something.

I know it's a dairy product, but my coworker and I both do this regularly. Are we courting potential disaster?
