Did you know that you can freeze butter?
Butter (opened or unopened) can be kept in the refrigerator for one to three months. Yes, you can really keep it that long!
It can also be frozen for up to a year. Some people say the texture changes slightly after frozen, but I have had nothing but great successes with freezing butter. I simply just place the butter in the original package (still sealed) in the freezer. When you need it, just thaw it in the fridge and enjoy!
So… next time you can some cheap butter -stock up and freeze!

Keep the butter in it's original package. I remove it from the box but leave the wrapping on the stick of butter.
Place the butter in the freezer bag, remove as much air as possible and place in the bag in the freezer.
You can store the butter in the freezer for 6 months.
Defrost the butter in the refrigerator when needed.
