Whipped Butter

Does anyone make "whipped butter"? Cannot buy it here, in the shops that I go to. I only use unsalted butter. Waiting to hear....and thanks in advance!

I do all the time. I let a pound of butter come to room temperature, then put it into my mixer with a whisk attachment. Whisk until fluffy and gradually add 2/3 cup canola oil and whip until it's completely incorporated. Scrape into an airtight container - like Tupperware - and refrigerate. Before I need to use the whipped butter I take it out of the refrigerator for a few minutes to allow it to soften a bit. Spreads just like the stuff in the store and a lot less expensive.

I've used both salted and unsalted butter and am not sure which one I prefer. Depends on what I'm spreading it on.

Katie, I thought of the whisk idea but then was stymied. Wasn't sure what could/should happen next. ella/TO, you can always add some nice chopped herbs after doing what Katie recommends as well for a nice kick.
