    Butter isn't right if it's not soft.
    "For the authentic revolutionary conservative, what really counts is to be faithful not to past forms and institutions, but rather to principles of which such forms and institutions have been particular expressions, adequate for a specific period of time and in a specific geographical area."

    Ah, Sweden sounds wonderfully refreshing as it is close to 32 C. where I am.

    Actually, I'm an American who keeps the butter on the counter, under glass. It is real butter, and does not spoil as it is used before it can possibly go bad. Keeping butter out didn't kill Grandma, it didn't kill Ma, and it won't kill you.

    Indeed, the climate here is probably akin to central or southern/interior Sweden....and I'm only at the latitude of central France.

    Anyway, I usually keep my butter in the fridge--but occasionaly I leave it out and I've never had any issues with spoilage.

    Perhaps it's a psychological issue with me. I am one of those people who likes food to be fresh, fresh, fresh. I never have much food in the refrigerator because I don't feel comfortable eating anything that has been 'lying' around too long.

    For instance; I had some pork chops defrosting on the counter the other day. I went out for a few hours, and when I came home the chops had thawed out and were actually room temperature. Because they weren't even slightly cool, I tossed them in the dust bin. I couldn't bring myself to eat them.

    I suppose I am just conditioned to think of butter as an item which should be refrigerated. It's my own psychological block.

    Out.

    It is possible to keep ghee (clarified butter) out of the fridge for a long time.

    I suppose with all the butter fat removed, butter would be less prone to spoilage. I never found Ghee very tasty.

    I have really been 'drawn' into this butter debate

    Oh! Bravo! Hmmm, let's see: "Perhaps you were drawn in because you were a little crabby."

    Man, I just can't resist a bad pun! :p

    Ahhh . . . drawn butter . . .

    "Crabby" wasn't the first word that came to mind, but I just couldn't think of a way to fit in "lobster-y" into a pun. I guess punning isn't what it's cracked up to be!

    Tag! You're it!

    I suspect your humility is only an attempt at 'buttering' me up.
