Storing a Pound of Butter

moberemk | Feb 11, 201811:55 AM

So, living in Canada means that butter is expensive. The 1lb blocks are way less convenient than the sticks I got used to back in the States, but they're also noticeably cheaper; I've been thinking that divvying up a pound of butter into a more convenient form factor might work better financially and convenience-wise.

So, starting from a 1lb brick of butter, here's some thoughts I've had:

- Cutting up into 1-stick (1/2 cup) batons
- Cutting up into 1 tbsp increments
- Melting and dividing equally into two silicone ice cube trays (with a dozen slots) to create 1 tbsp "cubes" when they refrigerate again

Anybody try something like this before and have any suggestions on the most efficient (time- and cost-wise) way to handle a block of butter?
