The word "butyraceous" has not appeared on Serious Eats...until now. I first saw this word last weekend while playing Cranium with some friends—it's probably the only new thing I learned from the game. My friend and I guessed the correct definition: "like butter." God knows comparisons to butter frequently come up on Serious Eats and in my daily conversations (really, it does); I ought to use this word more often. As should you.
