Question: How long is butter good for?
Answer: According to the USDA, butter (opened or unopened) can be kept in the refrigerator for one to three months. It can also be frozen for up to a year (the taste and texture will change considerably after that point). Discard any butter that develops an off color, flavor or smell.
