What a beautiful way to store and serve butter so it's soft when you want to use it. This French Butter Crock will keep your butter soft and fresh because you store it at room temperature and seal in freshness by keeping about an inch of water in the bottom of the crock. When you're ready to use the butter, simply lift the top off and set on the table.
Simply pack your butter into the hollow flange that I built into the lid. Add water into the base, just enough to create a seal with the butter when the lid is placed on the top. This crock will keep your butter dairy fresh on your countertop for several weeks. Be sure to change your water every few days.
I created this on my pottery wheel out of porcelain clay and glazed it in a gorgeous very soft pale bluegreen. The interior is glazed in a glossy white.
It will hold 2 sticks of butter (8 oz) and is 3" high x 6" across.
It's very durable and may be cleaned in the dishwasher and may be used in the microwave, too, (if you want to melt some butter for dipping, say, lobster tails or crab legs!)
Note: the little butter knife pictured with this dish is not included in the listing.
