Salted vs Unsalted Butter

A question I received about recipes that call for unsalted butter. It was asked if they could use regular salted butter instead unsalted butter

I recommend using unsalted butter when a recipe calls for it, because it allows you to control the total amount of salt in the recipe. But sometimes I do not have unsalted butter so I do use salted butter and then omit salt from recipe. It is my preference though to use unsalted especially for baked goods.

  1. I always keep unsalted butter in the house and haven't bought salted in a few months. Granted, sometimes it's nice not having to whip out the 1/4 teaspoon (or look for it, LOL!) but it's so easy to over-salt when you use the salted variety.

    At least or me anyway. Thanks for the this post.
