The Staggering Amount Of Butter Ree Drummond Goes Through
By Kalea Martin
Anyone who watches "The Pioneer Woman" knows that Ree Drummond loves cooking with butter — it isn't uncommon for the celebrity chef to use up to two sticks of butter per recipe. In case you were wondering just how much that amounts to, Drummond actually calculated it and shared the surprising number on The Pioneer Woman website.
According to Time, the average American uses 23 sticks of butter throughout the course of a year. The television personality revealed on her blog that she had once gone through exactly 484 sticks, or 121 pounds, of butter in a span of 15 days, and she went through 131 pounds of butter during the first season of “The Pioneer Woman.”
Even though she buys a good amount of the ingredient, Drummond doesn't just grab whatever is on sale. Instead, she's partial to Land O'Lakes butter, claiming the brand "has been stacked in my fridge since the dawn of time, and even before then" (via The Pioneer Woman).
