Preparing Wisely...Canned Butter

I learned about this canned butter at a canning class and imediately went home and researched it. I would love to have real, creamy, natural butter in my year supply. It seemed too good to be true. It wasn't. This is real cream, real salt. That's it. It has an indefinite shelf life and tastes great. Each can contains about 3 sticks of butter. Preparing Wisely is now carrying it. I have learned that this goes fast. Very few companies in the U.S carry it so get it while you can. It isn't cheap but that is the cost for quality and convenience. The price from Preparing Wisely for this month is about half the cost of internet prices. Great deal. Visit their store and check them out.

Red Feather Canned Butter

Price: $6.00 for 12 oz Can

(Case Price is $129.60 for 24 Cans or $5.40 per can)

Red Feather Canned Butter is an extremely popular food storage item because it is made from two ingredients: Cream and Salt. That is it. There are no colorings, dyes, additives or preservatives. This butter tastses like high quality butter fresh from the store. This butter has a long shelf life and needs no hydration. It is recommended that the contents be removed from the can immediately after opening and that the contents be refrigerated if not used.

Have you ever tried jarring butter? I heard it's pretty easy, I just have never done it. Is this stuff better than canning your own?

I have read about canning butter intensely and have friends who have canned it but....there is much skepticism about the bacterial level in the butter that is canned this way. I didn't want to take chances, plus...home canned butter takes on a grainy and salty taste.

Thanks! We use butter a lot and I have been trying to figure something out for food storage. This is great!

My friend Kara cans her own butter and has instructions here on her blog- might be worth a try if you can gt a bunch on sale. I know it's always on sale around Christmas. Here is the link to her blog.
