"Why butter?" you might ask. Well, I can usually buy butter at about $1.69/pound, but it won't be that way forever. What if I lost electricity? What if I couldn't get to the store for whatever reason? No problem! I have 10# canned. And it is really easy!

Only use high quality brand butter. Heat mason jelly jars (I use 4oz jars for convenience, but you can use whatever size you like.) in an oven @250* for 20 minutes (not the rings or seals). While jars are heating, melt the butter slowly till it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cover. Simmer for 5 minutes. Pour melted butter in hot jars, be careful not to get any butter on rim of jar. If you do, wipe it off carefully with a clean damp cloth. Add seal and ring. They will seal as they cool. Shake them gently a few times during the cooling process to keep the butter from looking separated. The more you shake, the less separated it will be. Put in refridgerator to harden again. Once hardened, remove and store on shelf. They will keep for three years.

The texture is a little different (kind of like butter that has melted and reheated~ DUH!) but it tastes fine.

Wow, Keep it coming Medican mom, I can't get enough ideas. We plan on building a root cellar and this sounds like it would be great. I'm all about making do or planing ahead as best we can. Smile

Thanks Jaynee!: Lord willin', MissKitty and I will be trying to do this within a few days.


squeezinby: "We plan on building a root cellar" I don't want to hijack this thread but am real interested in building a root cellar also. Might be a good topic for another thread, something like "Anyone built their own root cellar?" or some such wording...

As long as it is real butter, I don't see the difference!

Yes you can. Friends of ours made a video about canning butter and it was store bought butter.

MissKitty and I just got around to trying our hand at canning butter.

After Action Review (AAR):
1) Melted 7 ea 4 oz. sticks of butter, some from ALDI and some Highland brand, and it filled 5 ea. 1/2 pint (4 fl. oz) jars so some loss as the water is boiled out.

2) We have learned to stir the pan between pouring each jar as the last jar filled has a whole lot more butter fat than the first jar poured.

The jars are still cooling so it will probably be tomorrow before we open one to sample...

thanks for posting this!!!!!

AAR continued: Well the jars have all cooled and contents solidified somewhat. The last jar filled, the one with the most buttterfat, took the longest to solidify. The contents in all are the same color, not that it will affect taste any, but the color is quite pretty.

Not sure just when we will get the courage to open a jar and test/try it.

Well, MissKitty cooked up pancakes (from homemade pancake mix, but not from home ground/milled flour, that's coming soon though!) this morning for breakfast and we tried one of the jars of canned butter. Other than being a lot saltier... the taste was fine, can't say as I thought the taste was any different that "usual".

Life is good on Our Lil' Farm!

Maybe try unsalted butter next time and add your own. That way you can control how much is in it.
