butter does not need to be refrigerated for safety purposes *LINK*

however - it's gonna be a puddle here in texas because of the heat!!!

"A report from the FDA explains that pasteurized, salted butter is safe to keep out in room temperature because the pasteurization of the cream lowers the bacteria count and the churning process enables water molecules in the butter to be mixed among and separated by the fat molecules. The fat molecules, in part, make it very hard for bacteria to break through, which means the likelihood of butter spoiling is low. In other words, butter does not need to be refrigerated for safety purposes."

Yeah, if we left it out, it would be drinkable. *NM*

I have left butter out my whole life, as did my mother and my grandmother. I like it to be soft
Re: I have also kept it out when I have a stick of it.
