There is no USDA approved recipe for canning butter, but we do it anyway. We discuss why it isn’t approved and why we still choose to can butter regardless. While we don’t feel comfortable doing a tutorial on a recipe that isn’t tested, we have no qualms about sharing our day. Enjoy!

If you have some tips or a video on how to can butter, please be sure to leave a comment or link below. We encourage community and want to provide access to a variety of information so viewers can make their own informed decisions about the topics we cover.
