The way they normally sell butter in the States is in pound packages and there are four individually wrapped sticks in each package. Each stick is 1/4 pound or 4 oz. It would equal 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons. (06/09/2009)

Some companies here in the States are now selling that pound of butter in eight sticks instead of four sticks. Land o' Lakes is the brand I use and they recently switched to the eight sticks per pound.

Anyway, any stick of butter has markings on the individual wrappers here that show the tablespoon and/or cup amounts so if a recipe calls for 'a stick' you might want to find out the detailed equivalent measure. Sorry if I sound ignorant but I am curious if there are amount markings on Australia's sticks of butter? (06/10/2009)
