We make homemade margarine out of butter and oil. It is more healthful than commercial margarine and a little less expensive than using straight butter. You can use whatever type of oil you like in this recipe. We usually use 1/4 cup olive oil (not extra virgin) and 1/2 cup canola oil. Using all olive oil does make it taste rather strong.
In a large mixing bowl, whip 1 cup softened butter. Combine 1/4 cup water, and 3/4 cup oil. Slowly pour oil and water into butter with the mixer running on low speed. When all the liquid is dispersed, turn mixer up to high and mix until the butter is very smooth. Pour into a container and refrigerate, Use as you would any butter or margarine.
