I'm borrowing my friend's Sam's card and I'd like to stockpile butter since it is so much cheaper there than the grocery store.
I will be using it for baking and Swiss Meringue Buttercream in the upcoming months. Does anyone know if this will have any negative effects on the cakes or buttercream? I will vacuum pack the butter before freezing.
Thank you in advance!
I always buy butter in bulk and freeze it. Never have special wrapped it. I do keep it it in a freezer that has nuts and flour, not meat, etc.
I freeze it often. I buy those giant 3 gallon zip lock bags to store it in. Freezes fine.
I buy mine at Sam's as well, I just throw it in the freezer, still in the box and it comes out just fine!
I freeze it all the time, no problems.
This is something I always wondered about too. My thanks to everyone even though I never asked this question!!
Whenever there is a Buy-one-get-one at the store I buy lots and freeze! You just can't freeze things with high fat as long as other things (like veggies). Here is what the brand Organic Valley says about that:http://organicvalley.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/56/~/can-i-freeze-butter%3F They say you can freeze butter up to a year! I think I need a separate freezer for when butter goes on sale again....
