Canned Butter for cooking or baking

I was wondering if any one has used canned butter for cooking and baking? I found some at Ready Depot the other day at readydepot Home Page :

here is the exact link: Food:Butter, Canned

I talk to the owner of the store and he said it is infact 100% pure butter with a little salt added (he thought it needed more). This stuff comes from New Zeland. I was wondering if any of you have used it?

I am curious so I ordered a case. I kind of like the idea of keeping butter on my shelf!

At $5 for 3/4 of a pound, that's expensive butter. Buy local butter and freeze it.

That is an intriguing way to buy butter; I've never heard of it. Might be good for taking on a camping trip, I guess...We can buy NZ butter here - it is very very good.

As far as I'm aware, it's just butter - but in a can. I guess the air-tightness allows it to keep longer?

I'd never seen it before until a week or so ago, when a friend who works for a dairy factory passed some on. Maybe it's a new thing?

Take a look at the website...it is sort of a "survivalist" thing. Or for people who are spending time in the outdoors...I guess it never occurred to me to fill my pantry with BUTTER. Let's see....what would I most hate to live without? Maybe I should get some - LOL.

Hey, don't stone me, but perhaps Paula Deen has some on her pantry shelf.

Well, in the words of Judy Tenuta, ''It could happen.''

Are you and your dairy factory friend in the US? Maybe his factory is considering doing this? I sure would like to find a producer in the US. Any info would be appreciated.

I am probably telling you something you already know but about 4 weeks ago it was all over the news that there was no butter on shelves in Japan. Food shortages are going to become a way of life I think in the future.

Ya know cooking with out butter well lets just not go there!

Mine should be here by friday and I'll let ya all know how it turns out.
