This is a homemade margarine or soft spread 'butter'. While it is not lower in calorie, it has a higher ratio of unsaturated to saturated fat than butter, and unlike margarine, it contains no trans fat. Create a flavored butter by adding garlic or cinnamon, or anything you chose!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 ¼ cups canola oil

Directions

  1. In a lidded, plastic storage container stir butter until it has a smooth, frosting-like consistency.

  2. Slowly, one tablespoon at a time, stir in the first 1/2 cup of oil; mix until smooth. Stir in the remaining oil a little more quickly, mixing well.

  3. Refrigerate for 3 hours, or until set.

  4. Store in refrigerator. If the 'butter' melts after being left out, refrigerate to restore solidified quality.
