Incorporate 1 to 2 teaspoons of salt per pound into softened butter by creaming them together, or melt the butter and stir the two ingredients together. Fine-grained salt is recommended in order to avoid a finished product with a grainy texture.
- Determine the correct proportions
Commercial salted butter typically has 1 to 2 teaspoons of salt per pound of butter. Use this amount, or add slightly more or less to suit your individual preference.
- Prepare the ingredients
Soften the butter on the stove or using your microwave. This makes blending the ingredients together easier and also reduces the likelihood of a grainy texture.
- Mix and enjoy
Cream together the soft butter and the desired amount of salt. Refrigerate the butter when done.
