Yes it can be frozen. It doesn't change the flavor or texture- just allow it to naturally thaw in the fridge. You can freeze it for about 6 months easily.
Absolutely! One of the better ways to store it. Some recipes even require frozen butter.
The only way that I buy butter is in bulk (so much cheaper) and keep it in the freezer. Like Chris, it's been in there for 6+ months, and it's still as good as the day that I bought it. makes it easier when making biscuits and dough too. nice and cold :)
Thank you to everyone for your helpful advice on freezing butter.
With the cost of butter so high and a required baking ingredient, I can purchase it when it's on sale and stock up!!
I always freeze my butter! And buy lots when it's on sale! Most foods with a high fat content will store well and not affect their flavor/consistency.
Hope this helps!
Michelle, yes butter can be frozen for up to six months. I normally purchase butter when it's on sale and then stock up my freezer. Be sure to allow the butter to thaw in the fridge over night.
