Description

Make your own butter! It’s easy, fast, tasty and fun!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup, 2-⅔ teaspoons, ⅞ pinches Heavy Cream

Preparation

Pour the heavy cream in the bowl of your electric mixer. Turn it on high speed and whip up the cream. When the cream is nice and whipped, don’t stop—keep whipping it until the fats in it separate from the liquid and stick to the whisk. It will take a good 5 minutes.

At this point, move the solid fats (which is your butter) into a cheesecloth. Squeeze out the remaining liquid, then rinse it under water; squeeze again. Then remove the butter from the cheesecloth, wrap it up into plastic paper and refrigerate it until you are ready to use it.

I’ve taken to making all my own butter lately … just because. But because I really hate waste I always try to find uses for the buttermilk – WITHOUT needing to use up all the lovely butter I’ve just made! Not as easy as you might think, especially given that this buttermilk is not interchangeable with cultured buttermilk, called for in most recipes. One recipe I’ve found is an Irish soda bread from KAF, but I’d like more options. Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks!

I have made this before. It is really fun!
REMEMBER: squeeze all of the buttermilk out!! One time, I didn’t squeeze ALL of it out, and the butter quickly turned sour-smelling even though the taste is still good butter.
