10 how to freeze butter

How to Freeze Butter

Can you freeze butter? You might be surprised that you can!

how to freeze butter

I love to bake a lot, and one of my staples of baking is butter. I admit that I’m guilty of starting to measure out everything, I’m almost ready to mix, and only then do I turn to the fridge and find we are out of butter and I have no alternatives in the house. So when I see butter on sale, I try to stock up and put some in the freezer to keep for when I get in a baking mood.

MOMables has so many tips just like how to freeze butter that are made available to you. Better yet, we provide a weekly meal plan that gets sent straight to your inbox! No hassle! All you do is print out your shopping list, hit the grocery, and boom! You have everything you need for the entire week! Interested? Get started here!

How to freeze butter couldn’t be any easier. Simply keep your butter in its original packaging, place it in a freezer-safe bag or container, and put it in the freezer! It is as simple as that. Don’t forget to put the butter inside a freezer-safe bag though because the butter can absorb the smells and tastes of other things in the freezer, which is not a good thing. Not that I know from experience or anything.

When you are ready to use your butter, just thaw it in the refrigerator, or you can use it straight from the freezer if very cold butter is needed for a specific recipe.
