Home Made Butter Spread
Home made butter spread is not that difficult. I used to buy butter spreads. The butter that had omega 3 mixed in and was spreadable. These spreads still had preservatives and other things added to them. And they are expensive. My kids need the extra omega 3 in their diet. As well as my husband and I. My one son has a slight allergy to fish. His throat feels like it is closing up when he eats it and it gives him a stomach ache. So I turn to flax seed oil. Flax is high in omega 3. Just 1 Tablespoon of flax seed oil contains 7,420mg of omega 3, 2,170 mg of omega 9, and 1,960 mg of omega 6. All I do to make butter spread is let a stick of butter soften. Then I add 1 tablespoon of flax seed oil. Mix it in well. Put it into a container with a lid and put it in the fridge. If it gets too hard let it soften again and add a little more flax seed oil. Now you have a spreadable butter that is high in the omega complexes that did not cost you a fortune!!
