    Hello, all!

    We are going to process butter by the pound next Spring. We will be using the wooden butter mold that gives you a "brick" of butter. Then we are wanting to wrap the individual sticks before freezing them. Butcher paper is too thick and freezer paper is "okay." Can we use parchment paper? I want the paper to be thin because we will put the wrapped sticks in a plastic freezer bag.

    For the spreadable butter, we are going to use "Butter Bells." If someone has a butter bell they don't want, please PM me!

    Please let me know what you think.

    I don't see why not. Have you tried wax paper too? Or Saran Wrap individually and then wrap the whole bunch in freezer/butcher paper?

    The butter I buy and love from Central Market is wrapped in a relatively heavy freezer paper type stuff. And I've seen some in foil.

    parchment should work if you then put in plastic bags I would think
