Fancy Butter

My friend brought me a butter mould from a trip to Norway.  Apparently they always make fancy butter for special occasions.

I have been meaning to try it out for awhile and we finally did.  We actually had our fancy butter on Christmas Eve.  It has been awhile since I’ve uploaded pictures from my camera.

Basically you fold the mould together insert the pin and press room temperature butter into it.

Then you set the whole thing in the fridge for a few hours or overnight.  I was a little worried about how to get the butter out.  I read up on it a little online and decided I would take it out of the fridge for an hour or so and then wrap it in a hot cloth for a few seconds and slowly open the mould.

Et voila!

Pretty butter.  Life is too short not to have pretty butter right?
