Traditional French soft-butter crock

Butter existed long before refrigerators. The French (of course) came up with an ingenious way to preserve it, still unsurpassed by today's technology. The top section holds exactly one stick of soft butter. Add a few ounces of cold water to the bottom of the crock, submerge the top into it as shown, and store right on your table. Keeps butter fresh and spreadable at room temperature for several weeks.
