What could be better than the taste of butter? If you choose wisely and use sparingly, butter can be a healthy ingredient in your disease-fighting, anti-aging arsenal.

Butter absorbs flavors so it should be wrapped airtight for storage. Refrigerate regular butter for up to 1 month, unsalted butter for up to 2 weeks. Both can be frozen for up to 6 months.
