  • Frozen butter?

    Has anyone here ever frozen butter? Does it affect the taste or texture? I ask because my Grocery Outlet has Anchor New Zealand (grass-fed) butter on sale for $1.49 a pound.

      Nope. Where I work we always get our butter shipped in frozen and it doesn't seem to make a difference.

        Definitely freeze it for future use. It keeps quite nicely frozen, and with that deal, I'd stock up for sure. Obviously you want to make sure it's wrapped so it doesn't absorb flavours from other things in the freezer, but otherwise, it's fine.

          Cool, thanks! (Actually, it's $1.49 per 8-oz package, which is still a good price.) I think I'll buy about 20 pounds and triple wrap it in Costco aluminum foil sheets.

            Great deal, stock up and freeze. I do the same when I go to Amish Country.

              I do it all the time when it goes on sale. Just throw the block in the freezer. Take it out and put it in your fridge a day before you need it

                Buy some fresh herbs and make some herb butter with some of that. Cut it up and freeze. I made a couple of batches of garlic butter and parsley butter and it is the best thing to spice a dish up. Boring steak and steamed veg? The butter being ready to go makes all the difference.

                  When I find butter on sale, I buy a bunch and freeze all but a pound. It's never gone bad on me.

                      +1000. it freezes very well. it also keeps just fine at room temp and now that the weather is beginning to moderate it will be back on the counter again for me.
                      As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
