Canned butter is probably something that you don’t have on your deep pantry shelves. When considering long term food storage, you might not have known that you can actually get canned butter.
If you have been looking to add REAL canned butter, not powdered or Freeze Dried to your long term food storage program, look no further! If you put this on your butter dish your kids wont even know!
From Tom over at Camping Survival, “We have found a canned butter that is imported from New Zealand that actually tastes better than any gourmet butter we had ever tried and with an indefinite shelf life, no refrigeration is necessary!”
This can contains 12 oz of butter – which works out to three traditional sticks of butter.
Refrigerate unused portion in a separate container.

Canned Butter Reviews
A few reviews from Tom’s site:
– Would recommend for food storage, camping or hunting camp. We are really satisfied with the product. It beats that dried butter powder hands down.
– Just opened a can of butter that is five years old. Has been stored in the basement where it is cool. Just as good as the day I bought it.
– Finally tried a can of this butter and wow, tastes better than store bought stuff and melts great and even spreads well
Butter Storage Tip
– Although they say to “refrigerate unused portion”- I would highly recommend to simply buy a “BUTTERBELL BUTTER KEEPER” – this is what is commonly used in Europe and elsewhere including the Australian bush and many countries who don’t have electric. Butter kept in a ButterBell with a tiny bit of water added will last shelf stable up to 30 days. As long as you change the water ever few days.
[Ken adds:] We have been using the following Butter Bell Crock for years. They’re great!
I know that some of you have canned your own butter. While I do recommend getting some from Tom over at Camping Survival, for those of you who ‘can’, let’s here how you do it:
