Picture of Safety Butter
When you really love butter, but it's bad for your health, sometimes you can just have a little bit now and then.

I made these "safe" frozen portions of butter from a regular block, so the butter is there for those special occasions, safely stored and not sitting in the butter dish, tempting you with it's tasty buttery goodness, all the time. That's why I call it "Safety Butter", and not "Individual Portions Of Butter".

The idea is you can just get one out when your diet allows it, and not worry about the rest of the block going rancid - so it's "safety butter" for that reason too.

Step 1: Cut out some paper

I used waxed paper from a kitchen shop, but ordinary greaseproof would do. Cut out squares about 4" to a side. Get a freezer safe container ready to put the portions in.

I like butter :-D

Good idea!

A tight (tense) wire cuts butter, cheese and things like these very well, better than any knife.
