Real canned butter (not ghee) & canned cheese

Has anyone tried either?

It seems there are quite a few canned butters out there made in various countries. I mean, shut my mouth as my jaw dropped.

This link with pictures does a review of "Red Feather" from New Zealand which says ...
"It is great! Smooth and creamy as good a butter as I've ever tasted"

That same site had a link to real canned cheese and, of course, I couldn't resist looking.

I was in a Latino store near me in San Pablo, California and saw my first canned butter. Looked at the can ... cream & salt ... that was it. No preservatives.

I forgot to write down the name and decided to goggle "canned butter" and gee, 10,000 hits on canned butter.

This appeals to me because I don't use butter that often and it would be nice to have on hand instead of the stick I keep in the freezer that has parties with ever food in there picking up odors and flavors no matter what protection I use.

As to the cheese, it was written by a cheese deprived New Zealander and might not be available outside of that area. However, it seems like a good idea to have in an emergency.

Has any one tried canned butter and what brand? Is it any good? I even found a recipe for canning your own.
