Tips

  • Margarine that has been continuously refrigerated will usually keep for about one month after the "sell by" date on the package.
  • To freeze margarine, wrap tightly in heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic freezer wrap, or place inside a heavy-duty freezer bag.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
