Storing Butter

How to keep your butter fresh long after your purchased it.

To ensure that your butter is indeed fresh, check the code date on each carton and container of butter for its expiration date. Each package shows the month, date, and year that the butter should be used by for best quality. This date is based on refrigerated storage and represents the last day the butter can be sold in the stores.
