Don't refrigerate.

Use a butter dish, and whatever you do, use a butter knife to remove the portion of butter you intend to use from the stick. Deposit that on your plate and use your own knife to distribute and/or spread. It's the only method that keeps contaminants off the butter.

Should butter be refrigerated?

I guess it boils down to, how long does your butter sit out until it gets used up?

Anecdotal evidence would suggest that it can be left out fairly safely for a couple (maybe even several) days at a time.

If you find that the butter you leave out is going bad before you are using it all up, then refrigeration would seem to be recommended.

I use butter so rarely at home that I could never leave it sitting out, unless I was just looking to throw my money away.

Not refrigerated. Get a butter bell and you can store it at room temperature (unless your rooms are 100 degrees.) Keeps it nice and soft for spreading by using water.

You can buy new ones online, but you can also find them in antique shops.
If you can pull it off in a biker bar without being violated by a corn dog, more power to you.

Can you eat pork if you mix it with lobster, while praying to Jesus, on a Sunday?

Is it Sunday? I can never remember all the rules to these flashy new religions...

No.

But apparently giraffes have all of the qualities necessary to be Kosher. Although, hanging one upside down and slitting it's neck, could be quite a chore.

Crickets are Kosher as well. Snap! Crackle! Chirp!

Do you have to refrigerate giraffe?

My complaint is that the cold stuff doesn't spread well.

I just take it out a little earlier. Or nuke it. But you have to be careful if you nuke it, it will turn to liquid in a flash.

We don't ever refrigerate our butter. Has never gone bad. Has gotten pretty soft when left too close to the stove. Keep it in a stoneware butter dish.
