The final result of our butchering weekend. A WHOLE freezer (and half of another) filled with beef.
And this is what the finished product looks like.
And from the freezer, we thaw and put our butter in our new Butter Crock for use on the counter. It is a crock that stores exactly 1/4 pound of butter and can be left on the counter up to 30 days without the butter spoiling. The secret is the cold water! You fill the bottom of the crock with a little cold water, then turn the lid over into the crock. Since the butter is submerged in water, oxygen does not reach it keeping it fresh for a long period of time. Not that it stays in there very long in our home!
