OK so, even while I am unemployed, we are still putting back preps. Since I have copious free time, I decided to can 4 pounds of butter. Essentially, this is ghee, or clarified butter. Now, I bought the butter at Sams Club, and 4 pounds was running about 6 FRNs for the pack. Now, at Costco, you can buy a quart - one quart, mind, of ghee for nearly 8 FRNs. Canned buter from major suppliers runs approximately 10.50FRNs/15 ounce can (source - Red Feather Canned butter - 65.00/frns for 12 15 ounce cans - Amazon.com) Now, pictured below are 1/2 quart (8 oz.) jars. The lids are the Tattler brand, and there are several great YouTube vids showing the process. No water bath or pressure canner needed. Anyone with some jars, butter and time can do this. My grandmother told me it could be done, with a near indefinite shelf life, many years ago. Now, I am not a mathematician, but this is easy, cheap, and puts some critical fats on the prep shelves. 4 pounds made 9 half-pints. I want to add: care must be taken when melting and clarifying the butter. It will scorch if you are not careful. Follow the process very carefully, take your time, and your rewards will be BUTTAH in a BOTTLE.
