Greatest Find EVER.

Do you know what this is? I discovered this little jewel about a year ago and immediately wanted one. It's a French Butter Crock. I was tickled pink to find this white porcelain for $12 online. What's the purpose of this Crock? Please let me explain.

This is what you get when you take the lid off. See how it has another square on the underside of the lid? That's where you cram an entire STICK OF BUTTER.

I've seen different measurements for how much water you're suppose to put in the base of your French Butter Crock but this one instructed 1/2 cup of water. The water keeps the butter spreadable without allowing it to separate into the mushy oily goo that happens when butter is left out for too long, while keeping it fresh and odorless. Simply change the 1/2 cup of water every 7 days and keep adding butter as needed.

Greatest find ever right?
