Story

One day a woman came into a house and asked for some butter without salt for a girl who got burned.

The woman of the house gave her some butter. The next time she churned she could not get any butter of the milk. It was a witch that asked her for the butter. Then the woman had to go the priest and get some blessed salt to put on the milk.
