Everyday Better-for-you Butter Spread


Based on a recipe I found in the San Francisco Chronicle several years ago.  With half butter and half canola oil, you get all the butter flavor with less saturated fat, less cholesterol, fewer calories, and more Omega 3s.  And it spreads well straight out of the fridge.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup canola oil
2 Tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon salt

Blend everything in a food processor and pour into a plastic container with a lid.  Or pour into ramekins to serve at the table.  Chill to firm before serving.  Store (covered) in the fridge.
