Butter & Ghee

Fats and Oils in Food Storage
http://apartmentprepper.com/?p=2750

When first getting into food storage, the main things that come to mind are canned goods, staples such as flour, sugar and salt, meats etc. Most of the time, fats and oils are left out of the initial food storage effort. However, fat is an essential part of our diet, and a great source of calories at a time when a high calorie intake may be required, or if the diet consists of mostly grains and beans. Fat is also necessary in maintaining the taste and texture of food.

The main challenge in storing fats and oils is the relatively short shelf life. When stored for too long, fats get oxidized, which causes it to get rancid. Rancid fat not only tastes bad, it becomes toxic and blamed for many ills such as heart disease, inflammation, atherosclerosis and even cancer. Let’s look at commonly used fats:

Butter

Regular butter does not store well at all. You can store butter in the refrigerator for a couple of weeks. I keep one bar in the refrigerator for everyday use, and keep the rest in the freezer. Frozen, butter will last for about nine months. Emergency Essentials has Butter Powder for long term food storage but I have not tested it. If you’ve tried it, please comment and let us know how it is.

Ghee

The last time I went to the international market I saw several cans of “ghee,” but I did not know what it was at the time. I found out ghee is clarified butter, and is used in many cultures as oil. While not realizing it, we have all seen ghee: When you heat butter, you will see the clear oily part separating from the milky part. The clear part is ghee. Ghee comes in cans and can last for a year. --- Continued at LINK, above ---

Butter-Make Your Own From Shelf Stable Whipping Cream

BUTTER! At last REAL shelf stable butter!!!!
http://eatingfoodstorage.blogspot.com/2012/05/butter-at-last-real-shelf-stable-butter.html

Image Ok, if you are a follower of my blog, you know my butter saga. When living off food storage, butter and cheese were the things that we missed most. At long last the butter issue is SOLVED - thanks mostly to one of my readers who happened to mention shelf stable cream.

WHAT?

How is there such a thing? Oh, but there is, my faithful readers, there is. Not only does it exist but it also can be churned into REAL butter!

I hunted high and low to find it, it's really only available in Utah and Idaho (of course) but I did find a website that sells it, so I bought a whole case. ---CONTINUED at LINK, above ---

Making Butter at Home, Like Our Grandparents
http://www.askaprepper.com/making-butter-at-home-like-our-grandparents/

The making of butter goes back at least 4,000 years, with the earliest known reference to it written in the Bible. When Abraham entertained the three angels, before they went on to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, butter was amongst the foods he offered them to eat. Apparently butter has been used ever since mankind first domesticated cattle and was considered by many in ancient times to be food of the Gods. . . .
