    Just retired this spring, planted a huge garden, and then went off my rocker and bought two milk cows--getting 4-5 gallons of milk each day. Wife's busy making butter and cheese--convinced hard times are just around the corner. Anybody tried canning butter? Mom used to make a hundred pounds when the cow freshened and freeze it, but back then the grid was pretty much a sure thing. I'd like to put my eggs in two baskets, some butter frozen and some canned. Advice about canning it would be appreciated.

    @Tinfoil hat welcome to the Monkey from another Coloradan. I am glad to have another person from Colorado on here. As for butter, we have a canned butter thread located here- Canned Butter | Survival Forums It seems to not have a very long shelf life. Enjoy.
