National Butter Day - November 17

National Butter Day

Few ingredients make a dish richer and more flavorful than butter. National Butter Day, on November 17th, gives this creamy ingredient and those who make it a pat on the back.

Butter has been used by humans for thousands of years. The butter churn was a common tool in many kitchens as recently as the first half of the twentieth century. Families were unable to survive without this delectable staple as butter was rationed during World War II.

Butter can be used in both simple and complex ways – spread a pat of butter on warm toast for an instant boost of flavor and texture, or use it to create the light, flaky layers in a croissant. It also improves the mouthfeel of hot drinks, like coffee and cocktails, and it keeps meats tender while roasting. Butter is the key ingredient in delectable sauces, rich cookies, creamy mashed potatoes, hearty casseroles, and so much more.

Every year, the average American eats 6.3 pounds, or about 25 sticks, of cow's butter. Butter can be found in cuisines of every culture around the world, and each one uses it to enhance their recipes and enrich their lives.

The phrase "Please, pass the butter" on the dinner table connects us to those we break bread with and the food we love to eat. With butter, you will be able to honor your favorite dishes and baked goods.
