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!
