Thank you for sharing - I genuinely never thought to soften butter by placing it in water directly. I wonder if any of the residual liquid post-straining would have any adverse effects on a recipe? Or would it be so minimal, that it wouldn’t even be an issue…
Since butter is a fat, the water would roll right off, virtually none of it remaining.
I feel foolish now, completely blanked on that. Thanks for the reminder
