Food Storage: Butter

Dear Home Ec 101:

How long will butter last in the freezer?

~Freezing my Assets

Heather says:

It depends, at 0°F butter will last 6 – 9 months and still retain its quality.  I have frozen it for much longer with no noticeable change, but our deep freeze is only used for long term storage.  If a freezer is frequently opened, food may lose quality due to exposure to moisture or fluctuating temperatures.
