how long can butter stay at room temp if it's covered

>> No.19314322

It really depends on the temperature of the room

>> No.19314323

Depends what temperature the room is

Butter can typically stay at room temperature for a short period of time, usually up to a few days, if it's covered or stored properly. However, the specific duration may vary depending on factors such as the ambient temperature and humidity levels.

Butter is a dairy product with a high fat content, which makes it more susceptible to spoilage and rancidity when exposed to air and light. When butter is kept at room temperature, it softens and becomes easier to spread, but it also increases the risk of bacterial growth.

To extend the shelf life of butter at room temperature, it's important to store it properly. Here are some guidelines to follow:

Use a butter dish or a covered butter keeper: Place the butter in a covered container specifically designed for storing butter at room temperature. These containers help protect the butter from light, air, and odors.

Keep it away from heat sources: Ensure that the butter dish or container is not placed near direct sunlight, stoves, or any other sources of heat. Elevated temperatures can cause the butter to melt and spoil more quickly.

Maintain good hygiene: Always use clean utensils or knives to take out the desired amount of butter. Avoid introducing any foreign substances or contaminants into the container.

Monitor for signs of spoilage: Regularly check the butter for any changes in color, texture, or smell. If you notice any unusual or off-putting characteristics, such as a rancid or sour smell, discoloration, or mold growth, it's best to discard the butter.

Remember that if you live in a warm climate or if the room temperature exceeds 70°F (21°C) consistently, it's generally advisable to store butter in the refrigerator to maintain its quality and prevent spoilage. In the refrigerator, butter can typically last for several weeks or even months, depending on the brand and quality.

If you're unsure about the safety or freshness of your butter, it's best to err on the side of caution and refrigerate it.

The salted butter seems to stay good for a while and never noticed the butter going bad, even unsalted after a week.

>> No.19314585

Several weeks from my dad's and my own experience.

>> No.19314618

At a normal room temperature unsalted butter is safe for about two weeks or so. Salted or at lower than 70f will last significantly longer.

I often leave butter on the counter for a couple weeks at a time. Never had an issue.

>> No.19315982

Based on my experience, it can last pretty much indefinitely. I've used room temperature butter that hasn't been changed with a new stick from the fridge that has been sitting out for over two weeks. It does have a cover tho.

>> No.19316134

In the average indoor house climate, I'd say you can get away with it being out for 3 days maximum unless you live somewhere very warm. Of course there are people who leave it out for a one, two or even more weeks at a time but that's disgusting. Even if it looks okay, there is a shit ton of bacteria and stuff invisibly growing on it. Eventually it just starts to go rank.

What I do is just cut off enough for at most 3 days, cover it and put the rest away. If I leave for work in the morning I usually put it away and take it out when I get back if I know I will need it just to keep it even fresher.

If you're ever at a restaurant, remember to tell the chef to serve you any of your food he may accidentally drop on the floor.

>> No.19316369

I never refrigerate the butter I'm currently using and it's fine for the 2-3 days it takes to get eaten. Might depend on your climate though if you're in one of those places where it's hot enough for roads to melt you might want to keep your butter in the fridge.

When I was a kid in CT we always kept butter out at room temp in a dish. It never went rancid but a stick never lasted more than a few days. There was only one time in about ten years that something seemed off, and for whatever reason the only thing I could think of when I tasted it was 'motor oil'
>I was 11 or so who fucking knows why that came about, maybe the whole scent > taste connection
Since moving south afterwards I've never kept butter out. No real reason, but I certainly never got sick as a kid with room temp butter. Plus, it's great to have easy spreading real butter. Fuck oleo that shit's cancer in a tub

>> No.19316442

Eternally? I never put mine in the fridge, it sits in a butter dish on the counter. This is for normal butter, I don't know about cultured butter or flavored butter. What's better than butter? 'er butt. lol
