Butter moulds are a simple and easy way to turn your butter into either a generic size and shape to fit butter dishes or into a beautiful addition to the table at any special meal with friends and family.
We stock small and large wooden butter moulds in our Perth and Online Eco Store. Sally from Urban Revolution loved trying them out at home and found them easy to use. Here are our top tips for using our wooden butter moulds.
How to Use a Wooden Butter Mould:
1. Soak the wooden mould in cold (even icy) water for 30 minutes prior to using it. This will prevent the butter from sticking to the mould when it's time to come out. While the mould is chilling, leave your butter out to soften.
2. Remove the mould from the cold water and fill it with soft, room temperature butter. We recommend squashing a small amount of butter into the detailed parts of the mould first to avoid air bubbles in the detailed patterns. Once the mould is full, level the bottom.
3. Chill the filled mould in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
4. After chilling, the butter should be firm and will fall out of the mould with some gentle encouragement.
Voila! Beautiful butter ready to serve.
