My son is doing his science fair project on melted butter. Don't ask. Sixth grade science fair is crazy, that's all I can say. Anyway, he's looking at whether different types of butter melt at different speeds and is looking at four types of butter - regular salted, regular unsalted, organic salted, and organic unsalted. He'll be melting four sticks of each. We're going to do one stick each day after school - that way the pot and stove will cool down and be at the same temperature for each one. But this means that we'll be melting SIXTEEN STICKS OF BUTTER!
What the heck am I supposed to do with all this butter after it's melted??? Can I just pour it into a container and put it in the fridge to resolidify? Can I mix the different types into the same container?? Can I freeze it? I hate the idea of just throwing it all away but what am I going to do with 16 sticks worth of melted butter anyway?
