Better Butter Storage

Despite growing up on yellow tubs of margarine, I am a big fan of using real butter.  My only peeve is what to do with that partial stick of butter.  You can’t leave it uncovered because it picks up funky flavors.  For years, I’ve been putting it in a sandwich baggie.  I try to reuse the baggie as long as possible, but inevitably, it ends up in the garbage.

And then I had a forehead slapping “DUH!” moment.

Yeah. A half-pint mason jar is all I needed.  Good bye plastic, hello glass jar!
