Yummy butter. How often do you pass up a great deal on butter because you’re afraid you won’t be able to use it before the “best if used by date”? If you’re like me, you don’t pass it up, you buy the butter.
But what do you do if you have too much? It will last for about a month after the expiration date, kept in the fridge. If you still have some left, now what? Can you freeze butter? Yes you can.
- Wrap each stick in aluminum foil
- label and date the foil
- place each foil-wrapped butter into a Ziploc bag
- salted butter will keep for about 9 months, unsalted butter for about 6 months
- to thaw, place in refrigerator for 7-8 hours
