    Did you use water when you made the oil?

    i changed my mind i don't have enough grams to make 2sticks of butter..I'm going to do sugar cookies..cause the recipe i have only asks for 1stk..i think 1stk and 6.5g should be perfect..so now my ?n is how long should i cook it for in a crockpot?

    A direct quote:
    "This is called a liquid-liquid extraction, and takes advantage of the different solubilities of polar (salts) vs nonpolar (hydrocarbons) compounds in polar (water) vs nonpolar (oil) solvents." (Stinkyattic)

    I've used this recipe and love how it works. The taste of the butter improves with each boiling session.
