Canned Butter

I used the recipe that was in backwoods home magazine, the one written by Jackie Clay, and the butter turned out wonderful! I used unsalted sweetened butter for my first batch, I will add that it only made 9 half pints and I used three pounds of butter, I should have come up with at least 10 half pints.

Wow--this is a new one for me, and very interesting. I've never heard of canned butter. Does it preserve the butter so you don't have to go to the supermarket? What do you use it for? I'm very curious about this!

we recently lost our deep freezer, back in April and I have a LOT of frozen butter that was thawed in the disaster! So I'm canning it to use in the future for cooking. I probably won't use it on bread, toast, etc., but in cooked goods only.
