What do you do on a snow day?

I've wanted to try this for a long time to add to my food storage. You can can butter and it turned out wonderful! It's very easy and really doesn't take a long time. I bought some butter at Sams and 4 pounds will make 5 pints of butter. You warm the jars in the oven for 20 minutes while you melt the butter. You also boil the lids to get them hot. You then pour the butter into the jars and put the lids on them. After they seal, you may want to turn the butter a little to bring any air to the top. It's that simple! I figure it cost about $1.35 a jar.


  1. Linda...Bin...You put us all to shame... Just for that I am going to go can some....Jelly Donuts!! Yeah...that will be good... Jelly Donuts and Black licorice....

    You are the best...

  2. Holey moley, how long do those things keep? I remember seeing a guy at macey's selling canned butter for about $6/can and thought gee, that'd be nice! His had a very long shelf life, but I'd hope that -sometime- within a year, I could add new canned butter if I needed to! Thanks for the tip!
