You could always use the displacement method. For example, fill a 2 cup measure with 1 cup of water. Add butter until it measures 1 1/2 cups, which gives you 1/2 cup of butter.

I think he uses a fat separator rather than a measuring cup.

GB forget all the measuring that is going on here, I want to know what kind of butters you have there? I have never seen anything imported here. Once in a kosher store there was Israily butter, it was soooooo yummy.

You know it. I all for it. Makes so much more sence to use it too. I say Obama should switch to metric, it will give jobs to thousands of people that would be needed to convert everyhtnig into metric. That for sure will save the economy. Yey me!

We have a few Irish butters and one from somewhere else, but I do not recall where.
