It's amazing how many Internet searches can be started by just going to Costco. This time, I was fooled by the big box of butter.
Once home, I realised I'd bought too much. After the holidays, I envisioned a Saturday when I would throw away the expired yellow boxes.
Then I recalled that most problems had internet-based solutions. I froze my butter stock and vowed never to purchase another carton.

Following these instructions for freezing butter will help maintain its quality, texture, and taste, and no self-respecting home chef would accept less.
U.S. Dairy suggests keeping butter in its original packaging, but you may alternatively use plastic wrap or foil and a freezer-safe airtight container.
