  • Another Freezer ???--How Long Can You Freeze Butter?
    I know I've asked a couple of freezer questions in the past, but here I go again. How long can you freeze butter (not margarine, but real butter)?

    As always, thanks in advance for all of the responses I know I'll receive.

    Q: How long can butter be kept in the refrigerator? What about in the freezer?

    A:You can store butter (opened or unopened) up to one month in a refrigerator set at 40° F or colder. Opened butter cartons or unwrapped sticks should always be put in a separate refrigerator compartment or in a covered butter dish to prevent them from absorbing other food odors.

    For long term storage, butter (in any form) can be frozen for up to four months at 20° to 30° F, or up to one year at -10°F. Keep in mind that freezing for longer periods of time may affect the quality of flavor and texture. To freeze, place butter carton or sticks in a plastic freezer bag or wrap tightly with heavy-duty foil. If you’re unsure about whether to use butter that’s been stored, check the coding date marked on each butter container. This represents four months after production, so for best quality, butter should be used by that date
