Local grocery store has large (#10 I think) cans of "powdered butter".
How in the heck do they "powder" the fats?
I assume you add water to it to use it, but maybe you add corn oil or peanut oil.
Help! I'm confused!
You use it to make your powdered eggs, silly.
yeah but it works best if you rub her until she is steaming
You use it in recipes, the box will tell you the substitution ratios. If there is a way use it to make butter like you would spread on something, I’m not aware of it.
I have used the canned butter from New Zealand and it is excellent.
I know nothing about cooking but the water was taken out to dehydrate it, so you have to put it back in. What happens after that I have no idea.
“I assume you add water to it to use it, but maybe you add corn oil or peanut oil.”
Peanut oil works best.
Wonder how that would have worked in the movie “Last Tango In Paris”?
I’ve not used it (honestly never heard of it before now), but here is a website that gives its history and how they manage to dehydrate it:
Yes, put the water back in — rehydrate it.
We have all those dried products in #10 cans — my wife will know what to do if/when the time comes. She grew up making do in a very poor third-world country and this stuff is a luxury.
I used to buy “Molly McButter” and sprinkle it on steamed vegetables. Perhaps it was powdered butter. Anyway, it worked on warm, moist food best, but you could also put it on popcorn.
I know a guy who invented powdered water — But he doesn’t know what to add...so, yeah.
Not for anything kinky, if that's what you're asking.

You can easily substitute it for real butter in any recipe, whether you’re making some mashed potatoes or baking a birthday cake.
