you know what pisses me off??? I live in freaking WISCONSIN, and the only unsalted butter I can find in my dairy case is from Minnesota!

there are a ton of local butters but they all are salted. why is this? I've always baked with unsalted - not exactly sure why but it's what I do.

Make your own?

Buy a carton of heavy cream and shake the **** out of it until it hardens.

You're right to bake with unsalted butter. Most recipes already call for some salt. Using salted butter would throw that off.

Salted butter is like hopped extract, both decrease the control you have over your final product, boo.

When something makes no sense, I would start by looking into the law. Wisconsin has a history of odd laws concerning butter and butter substitutes. My mother grew up there and remembers buying white margarine with coloring packets, because it was illegal to sell yellow margarine. I wouldn't be even slightly surprised if butter manufacturers are forced to salt all butter, but it's legal for stores to sell unsalted butter from other states.
