Anyone know if I can use unsalted butter in this recipe?

I only have the unsalted butter on hand, and was wondering if anyone adds salt to it and how much.

Thanks!

Yep I make it with unsalted butter. Sometimes I add a pinch of popcorn salt--most of the times I do not.

If using unsalted butter, just add 1/8 tsp to 1/4 tsp salt per cube (quarter lb) of butter.
