I can't believe it's butter!

Butter is a rare Dairy Food item dropped by Butterflies (2% chance). It is an ingredient in the Crock Pot Recipes for foods that restore high Health and/or Sanity. It has an exceptionally long perish time, allowing the player enough time to gather the other necessary ingredients for these recipes.


Icon Tools.png Usage[]

Butter can be used in Crock Pot recipes that require any Dairy, such as Ice Cream. In addition, the following recipes specifically require Butter.

Prototype.png Tips[]

  • Waffles is a good healing food, but due to its rare ingredients it cannot be cooked in huge quantities, making it less superior. They are the only renewable food item that heals as much and does not drain sanity (except for some new foods in the Shipwrecked DLC).
  • As Butter only comes from Butterflies, it's highly recommended not to pick flowers near ones base, as more flowers equates to more chances for Butter.

Placeholder.png Trivia[]

  • Butter's striped appearance, and the fact that it comes from Butterflies, is most likely a reference to the browser-based MMO Glitch, that ran from 2009 to 2012.
  • Butter gave 80 research points when used on a Science Machine in the early beta of Don't Starve.
