Does Butter Need to Be Refrigerated?

Answer

Butter does not need to be refrigerated as it can be kept out for several days without going rancid. How long it will stay fresh at room temperature depends on the amount of heat and light it gets and whether it is wrapped. It is advisable to always store butter tightly wrapped or in a covered dish.
