Olive Oil Table Spread

Posted by Solitary Dancer on May 22, 2007

Olive Oil Table Spread

This makes a lovely spread that uses less butter and incorporates the health benefits of olive oil.

500g (2 cups) of butter
1.5 cups of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. (Make sure it is fairly light-flavored oil, otherwise the oil will overwhelm the butter taste)

Beat the butter in a food processor or Mixmaster until softened, then gradually add the olive oil.
When it is all completely blended, it will be quite pourable.

I pour it into individual containers and put lids on, then store them in the fridge.

When cold it is quite hard.

Variations: You can add some milk to make it go a bit further – up to 1/4 cup for this quantity. We make winter and summer blends too. The recipe above is for winter. In summer I use only 1 cup of olive oil, because the spread becomes too soft when it is left out in warm weather.”

Here’s a link for another variation I found at RecipeZaar.
