Hard butter without ice.

--To have delightfully hard butter in summer without ice, put a trivet, or any open flat thing with legs, in a saucer; put on this trivet the plate of butter; fill the saucer with water; turn a common flower-pot upside down over the butter, so that its edge shall be within the saucer and under the water. Stop up the hole of the flower-pot with a cork, then drench the flower-pot with water, set it in a cool place until morning, or if done at break fast the butter will be very hard by supper time.
