A warning to those cooking with butter (specifically when making a batter).

Betty Botta bought some butter. 'But' said she, 'this butter's bitter! If it put it in my batter it will make my batter bitter!" So she bought some better butter better than her bitter butter and made her bitter batter better. So 'twas better Betty Botta bought a bit of better butter.

1. And if you freeze buttah, wrap it well.

Cause it can get bitter then too.

2. The foil wrappers that Land O Lakes and Challenge use will work

and it's OK to freeze it right in the box, it stays good that way for many moons.

Wax wrappers don't do anything and should be covered with foil. It also helps to seal wax wrapped butter in a zip lock bag with most of the air expelled.

Slightly rancid butter might make the batter bitter, but trying to eat it on toast is a good way to provoke projectile vomiting. Nasty.

3. So what did all that better butter do to Betty Botta's butt?

I haven't made a buttery batter in a long time, and so I shouldn't, but... it got me thinking about the last cookies I made with sweet, fat-dense butter.

4. This is what happened

Betty Botta's friend, Betty Bigga, tried Betty Botta's batter, both bitter butter and better butter. Betty Bigga's butt got bigger on Betty Botta's better butter's batter because eating batter from a better butter was much better.

5. The King's Breakfast


Nobody, my darling, the King said to the Queen
Nobody could call me a fussy man
But I do like a bit of butter to my bread

(And it better not be bitter)
