How to soften oil – 5 ways
- Using a glass
Cut the butter into cubes of 2-3 cm – this way it will soften faster. Pour boiling water into a glass – do it carefully so that the glass does not crack. Leave for a minute, then pour off the boiling water and quickly cover the butter cubes with a hot glass. A few minutes – and butter can be spread on bread.
- Using a rolling pin
This method is suitable if you do not know how to soften frozen butter. Place a piece of butter between two sheets of parchment paper and gently tap the butter with a rolling pin 3-4 times to flatten it. Then roll out the butter with a rolling pin. Remove the parchment and collect the butter. Another 5 minutes – and the butter is soft.
- Using a grater
Grate the butter and leave it for 5 minutes to soften. Then you can mix it with other ingredients if you are cooking.
- In a water bath
