Butter is a staple dairy product in many households throughout the world. It is a cream-based product made by churning milk and then cooling it. Humans have enjoyed butter for thousands of years. While it is typically made from cow’s milk, it can also be made from goat or sheep milk. Even buffaloes and camels can produce butter, but it cannot be used to make cheese or spreads. The best way to use butter in cooking is to melt it in a saucepan and then use it as you would any other liquid.
