You can use it any way you would use regular storebought butter!  It is butter after all.  It's just that it's grass-fed instead of coming from factory farmed cows!  It is more expensive than regular butter that comes in a 4-cube 1 pound box, but in my opinion, the incredible taste and healthfulness are most definitely worth it!  I made my Christmas Marshmallow Cream Fudge with it, and oh my goodness!  Yum!
