I shared last week my obsession with a French Butter Dish or French Butter Crock on my social media. All the Nesters are now calling them a Butter Nest! Cutest name ever!!!! They are also called a Butter Keeper or just Butter Crock. I put together the BEST French Butter Crocks on the market in this post! The idea of keeping butter in a crock container that is shaped like a bell dates back to the 16th century. My friend Laila was the first to tell me about a French Butter Crock, and after she told me about it, I had to have one! Not only do they keep your butter looking nice, (insert photo of messy butter dish) they keep your butter soft on the counter and from going rancid. I thought I would put together my favorite French Butter Crocks and how to properly use them!
I have used a butter crock for years. My aunt gifted me a handmade crock and it might be one of the best gifts I have ever received. We use butter on almost everything!
