    I'm using/eating marge (out of the fridge) instead of butter, hence no problem there.

    Anyway, keep in mind there are good reasons to think about where you put which food. Just use the doorshelves, if it's too hard.

    The only additive in my butter is salt, just as much as there should be, and it is doing just fine in the cupboard. It has the real taste.

    Cold butter, in addition to being too hard, is tasteless and ruins your stomach. Nothing ruins butter like taking it in and out of a cold space several times a day. If you get a big chunk of butter, cut off a smaller chunk and put it in a bowl and cover it. It should do fine in a cupboard for at least half a week. Unless your house is too warm for it.

    When the heat was peaking earlier this summer (and it was warmer here than in Spain), I put my butter in the cellar.

    Ah, I notice you live in Sverige where it is always quite cool. Those who live in the South of England - and particularly the US or Australia- must deal with bouts of 32+ celsius. An American or Aussie wouldn't even consider leaving butter outside the fridge any more than he would a carton of milk or cream. Many an American and Australian child has been yelled at by their mum for leaving a dairy product outside the fridge

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

    It is not always quite cool here. We had 30 degrees celsius just some weeks ago. Western Sweden has Atlantic climate and is heated by the gulf stream. Areas close to the coast of Götaland have warm temperate climate. The winters are generally warmer in Sweden than on the same latitudes in North America and Asia.

    I've begun keeping my butter outside of the fridge. I wish I had done it my whole life, it tastes better, and is much easier to work with. It doesn't melt or spoil, it just softens so its easy to work with.

    Well, our not so remote ancestors used to season their poultry by leaving it hanging outside to rot a few days; so I suppose it's all a matter of personal taste. mmmm...rancid bird. Tasty.

    Three cheers for the great butter debate!

    Both. Depends what you're using it for too. Baking needs softened butter sometimes
