Hello Penny and all who use butter,

I haven't bought butter for years as a bread spread since I have cut 
back drastically on fats.  I make all my own bread and it tastes 
wonderful without a fatty spread.  When it comes to baking and 
cooking, I never did use butter but vegetable shortening or 
margarine.  I know many are concerned about cholesterol using 
hydrogenated fats, but if one uses them in moderation for those 
foods requiring a solid fat, I don't see any problem.  I use small 
amounts of oil for most of my frying.  So, as far as I'm concerned, 
butter could go to $10 a pound and it wouldn't bother me at all.
