Some people say that you should use unsalted butter if you’re making a sweet flavored butter. I disagree. I tend to view unsalted butter as the anti-butter. It rarely makes its way into our house. Most of the time I use salted butter, even if a recipe calls for unsalted butter. I do not enjoy unsalted butter, and I don’t like having it sitting around in the refrigerator. Salt helps to enhance flavor, and I really don’t think the butter tastes salty if you use salted butter for this.
