Canning Butter & other stuff : LUSENET : CountrySide Family : One Thread

While I was in town today I stopped at one of the local discount grocery stores. They had butter on sale for 99 cents a pound!! Since my freezer if full to the top and I don't want to use most of the available space in the refridgerator I'm going to try canning it. Has anyone here ever done it-how does it turn out? I bought 20# so this seems the best way to go if it works. Here's the site where I found the instructions. I may try some of the other preserving recipes too. The original idea came from a comment on the Backwoods Home board when someone mentioned canning butter but they didn't give any instructions.

Ive checked my books,, al recommend freezing,, and dont even mention canning or dehrydrating butter. I seem to recall, that on CS,, there was something about it, ,but alas,,, I am unable get the site to come up anymore. If anyone has CS saved to disc or hardrive,, might try looking it up there.

The books I checked,,,, Ball Blue BOok,,, Stocking Up,, Preserving the Harvest,,,and Encyclopedia of Country Living

This month's copy of Backwoods Home has an "Ask Jackie" article about canning butter.

Hope this helps.
