I just seen this on e-Bay and thought some of you may be interested.


I was looking for a stable fat to use in pemmican.

I can't seem to get the link to work, but it is Butter in a can, with not experation date.

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me, I want people to know "why" I look this way
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved

It's not fishy at all. Shelf stable butter has been used in Indian cooking for centuries. It's called Ghee and it's good stuff for lots of things.

It's clarified butter that's canned. I can't find any locally to save my life. I guess I'm not Indian enough to know where to shop for it wink

Hacksaw, also check any local health food stores that carry food not just supplements. We have a lot of them here in California, but I don't know about where you are.

This is the brand I see the most locally: http://www.purityfarms.com/

There is another brand that I also see sometimes, but I can't think of the name of it.

There are a lot of recipes for making it online, but I have never tried them. I buy the Purity brand for food storage.

There is a lot of talk online about the New Zealand canned butter. Some really like it. Some say not to order it when it is very hot. I don't know about that. But I would like to try it my self some time. My daughter is marrying a guy from N.Z. Maybe he can bring me some so I can try it!

Never heard of it, but it seems legit, after doing a search or two on the web. I've also known for a long time about the use of ghee in Indian cooking. I know it may not help Hacksaw or oothers, but you can get ghee from Kalustyan's in NYC. See: http://kalustyans.com/catalog.asp?menucategory_id=192&category_id=137

Thanks for the tips folks.

I've clarified butter for my own uses before but buying it jumbo for a rainy day is way more practical.

Big Daddy, have you tried it? I can't wait to try it.

And yes, Red Feather is the right name. Sorry, I meant to post that. There are 2 places that I know about where it is available online - where you bought it and Internet-grocer.

I have read online that a lot of people really like the cheese (Kraft canned cheese) too, but I don't care for kraft cheese, so I am not sure if I would like it or not. I don't eat much dairy for health reason, but my husband does.

Internet-Grocer also carries canned meats for anyone interested in storing canned meats. I haven't tried them either, so I can't say if they are good or not. From what their customers say it is pretty good and one customer said he ordered more once he tasted it: http://www.internet-grocer.net/realmeat.htm

too bad you have to buy the entire case, and can't just buy one can!

Some of the canned products you can buy a "sample can." Here is the link to the sample can for canned butter:

There are some more sample can's of other products on this page. I can't seem to make this second link work. You can always click on the "Canned Meats, Cheese and Butter" in the left hand column. http://www.mredepot.com/servlet/the-Canned-Meats%2C-Cheese-%26-Butter/Categories
